2016 Mayfair Christmas Decoration Contest WINNERS!



Here it is Mayfair - The moment that you've all been waiting for!

The 2016 Mayfair Christmas Decoration Contest was an unbelievable success with over 140 entries this year. What was really cool to see this year was how neighbors "upped their game" because of this Contest and added even more lights and decorations to their homes, and how many NEW entries that we had this year. It was all VERY cool to see and every year Mayfair continues to shine a little brighter!

I'm so glad that we decided to split the Contest up into 3 Categories this year and added a separate Row Home Category. Several Row Homes owners really do go all out decorating their homes however they only have so much room to work with. Giving them their own Category was the right thing to do, and it was a huge success!

The competition was once again extremely fierce which made judging the nominations very difficult. We don't do a "1st, 2nd or 3rd" in the Contest, we simply award the Top 3 in each Category. 

With that being said, here are the WINNERS of the Mayfair Civic Association's 
2016 Mayfair Christmas Decoration Contest! 


The WINNERS in the Row Home Category are:
(in alphabetical order)

• 3439 Chippendale

• 2808 Rawle

The WINNERS in the Singles / Corners & Twins Category are

This contest has been a huge success for Mayfair! 

It started out only four years ago, but it has already become a family tradition for many. If you haven't done so already, take a moment to check out our Google Map with all of the entries in the Contest, grab the family, and take a ride around Mayfair - It really is beautiful!


There are several people to thank starting with the reporters and their editors who covered our Contest, especially Bill Kenny and Tom Waring of the Northeast Times, the Mayfair Business Association Members who donated the prizes, Luka of the Mayfair CDC for creating our beautiful lawn signs printed by Aztec Signs, our 12 Judges who spent a countless amount of hours driving around Mayfair and scoring the 140+ entries, The Ashburner Inn for driving our Judges around in their bus, but most importantly, I'd like to thank the neighbors in Mayfair who went above and beyond this year while decorating their homes. 

Without you, this contest would not exist! 

Working together as a community, we have proven that Mayfair is indeed, A Great Place to Visit, and an Awesome Place to Live!

Merry Christmas Mayfair!

Just like last year, we have over 100 entries so far, and just like last year, the competition is fierce!

I drove around last night to check out some of the entries and as expected, last years winners have stepped up their game, and now that we have added a separate Row Home category, several row homes have stepped it up as well!

The deadline to enter the Contest is 12:00 noon on Wednesday December 14th. You can nominate your home or a neighbors home or business on the Mayfair Civic Association Facebook page, or send an email to MayfairCivicAssociation@yahoo.com

Starting on the 14th and throughout the week, keeping with the "12 Days of Christmas" theme, 12 Judges will cruise around Mayfair and give each home a score from 1-12 with 12 being the best.

The Top 10 will be announced on December 20th, and the WINNERS will be announced and prizes will be delivered on the 21st

Keep the entries coming Mayfair - Have FUN!
