Art Deco Weekend – January 13-14, 2018

It was the perfect combination of beautiful weather and beautiful surroundings along Ocean Drive on Miami Beach to celebrate the Art Deco Festival on January 13th and 14th.  Blue skies, pastel buildings, and shining chrome invited thousands of people from all over the world to take a stroll from 6th to 10th Street to see the AACA South Florida Region’s cars lined up as if they owned the place.

Thanks to our show co-chairs Mel Mann and Ira Shapiro, ably assisted by Bob Squier, Guy Lewis, Philip Williams, Cindy Endres, Manny and Millie Garcia, Chico Goldsmith, Gary Stump, and Tomas Hernandez.  Thanks also to the Miami Beach Design Preservation League for putting on this great event, and a special thanks to the men and women of the Miami Beach Police Department; they make it possible to put on this show for the enjoyment of everyone.
