Enjoy an afternoon of dancing and frivolity next weekend with Art Deco Day Out at Highwic in Newmarket.

The third annual celebration takes place on April 6 from 1pm till 5pm.

Auckland Dixieland Jazz Quartet will perform and there will be classic cars to see at the free event.

Highwic manager Cheryl Laurie says Art Deco fans should dress up in their best jazz-era get-up, pack a picnic and come for a fun-filled afternoon.

Members of the School of Swing Dance will demonstrate the Charleston and other dance steps.

"Those wanting to try out some of these dances will have the opportunity to have a go irrespective of whether they are - to use the lingo of the day - sharpshooters, skilled dancers, or corn shredders, people whose dance moves need some work," Ms Laurie says.

Refreshments will be available on site and visitors are welcome to use the shopping centre car park across the road.

Call Cheryl Laurie on 524 5729 for more information.
