Nearly 45,000 people took part in the Tremains Art Deco Festival in 2018. Most were residents of Napier and the surrounding Hawke’s Bay Region. Others – such as Janice M. Chandler and her husband from Auckland – travel to the event annually to enjoy the fun. Most of these folks wear 1930s clothing. The entire city is crowded with costumed people strolling between events, enjoying being seen and people watching.
