Includes the amusing and fun annual Great Gatsby Picnic. Held as part of Napier’s Art Deco Weekend celebrations, the picnic attracts enthusiastic locals and visitors who dress in 1930s style to picnic, play, posture and parade on the long stretch of lawn.
Be sure to look straight through the Marine Parade Arch, as it was purpose-built so the plaque of HMS Veronica is visible. The significance is due to the crew of the HMS Veronica providing the first outside source of help following the earthquake. For special Napier events, the ship’s bell hangs below the sign, otherwise, the bell is on display at MTG.
