Jan. 15, 2013 - PRLog -- (Miami Beach, Fl) — On January 18 – 20, 2013, MDPL will be hosting its 36th Art Deco Weekend (ADW) festival in celebration, as always, of the preservation of our Art Deco District....but this year the festival's spotlight is shining on the larger scope of history and discovery by celebrating the 500th year anniversary of FLORIDA-- "The Art Deco Era during Florida's Quincentennial". For three days and nights we will be partying, touring, shopping, and experiencing a variety of entertainment that will highlight everything beautiful and fun about our glamorous City and State. Hours are as follows: 1/18 (Noon – 11pm), 1/19 (10am – 11pm), and 1/20 (10am – 8pm). The ADW festival is free and open to the public. The only traffic on Ocean Drive from 5th to 13th street will be that of thousands of tourists and locals visiting tents filled with art, antiques and merchandise of all kinds, as well as sampling special menus of the many Art Deco Hotel restaurants that line the Drive!

This year, in addition to our famous guided walking tours and street fair, there will be an indoor Art Deco and MiMo furniture exhibit and sale which will make you “ooh and aah” and probably tempt you to add a piece of beautiful history to your own home! If you can't find the funds to carry home a table, then you will probably lose your ability to restrain yourself when you see our Betty Paige retro designs that will parade down the runway of our Art Deco/MiMo Fashion Show, and will be available for purchase in our Official Art Deco Gift Shop! And if just wanting to be entertained is your preference, then you can just stroll along and listen to our musical performances while watching our grand parade of vintage cars. In addition to all that, there will be wonderful film and lecture series that will not only entertain, but will give you an insight into all that has happened in this wonderful place--Miami Beach, and Florida in general. We assure you, this will be the best ADW yet!
