Art Deco Weekend

View 2009 Kiwi Summer on alexchan's travel map.

We flew down to the Art Deco Weekend in Napier [Napier-travel-guide-1140103] today. Napier is the (self-proclaimed?) Art Deco capital of the world because it was rebuilt in the style of that era after being levelled by an earthquake 1931. Like Nelson, it has known for good weather and a seaside setting. Oh, I want to move here too!

The Art Deco consists of all things of that period ... cars, costumes, dancing, music. All washed down with the famous Hawke's Bay wine from the surrounding countyside. Kim's sister Jo was her with the Navy Band providing plenty of entertainment on the trumpet.
