May Fair Cancelled and Run Still On

Unfortunately due to tomorrow's weather forecast, we have CANCELED the 2016 Mayfair May-Fair
We waited until the very last minute to make this decision hoping for a shift in the weather, however unfortunately it doesn't look like Mother Nature isn't going to give up.
The GOOD NEWS is that we will be combining several of the vendors and entertainment from our Mayfair May-Fair to our very first Mayfair Night Market, scheduled for Thursday June 2nd starting at 5pm right at Cottman and Frankford!
Please put the date and time on your calendars now, and stay tuned for more details as they become available! 
In other GOOD NEWS, the Mayfair Fallen Heroes Runs is STILL ON, and will begin the Run at Ryan and Rowland at 7:30AM!
