Art Deco Weekend in Napier takes place each February. It has developed into a huge series of events over a period of a week culminating in the Art Deco Weekend. I spent from 11am until about 4pm wandering, chatting to people I know, photographing and generally soaking up the atmosphere. There will be a few postings to go with those from the last few years and I shall start with a few random photos.
