A Very Very special Thank You to our Mayfair Business Association Members who have donated the prizes for this years contest!

They are:

• Aztec Signs
• Bellalisa Hair Studio
• Cottman Beverages
• Dunphy Ford
• Infinity
• Insectarium & Butterfly Pavillion
• The Grey Lodge Pub
• The Perzel Agency
• Sharon Owens State Farm
• Torresdale Flower Shop

These sponsors have been extremely generous with their prizes for this contest - Please show them you appreciation, and your support!
This is our 5th year of hosting this contest and needless to say, it has been a huge success! We had just shy of 40 homes nominated this year, and well over 1300 views (and growing) on our Decoration Contest Map (found here:…)

It is important to remember that this contest has been a success because we came together as a community, and each and every one of us has participated in one way or another. None of this would have been possible without the homeowners going all out and doing an amazing job of decorating their homes, without the nominations from our homeowners and neighbors, without our judges scoring each entry, without our Mayfair Business Association donating the prizes, and without the Mayfair Civic Association organizing the event and putting it all together.

Working together as a community, we can continue to shine a positive light on our neighborhood, and we can continue to show that Mayfair is indeed - A Great Place to Visit, and an Awesome Place to Live!
Thank you all!

Up next - The '2017 Mayfair Christmas Decoration Contest' ... Start planning now - Nominations begin on December 1st!

It's gonna be AWESOME, and it's another GREAT event happening right here in Mayfair!

It's that time of year again ... It's time for the Mayfair Civic Association's "2017 Mayfair Halloween Decoration Contest"!
Working in conjunction with the Mayfair Business Association and the Mayfair Business Improvement District, the Mayfair Civic Association will be giving away prizes and the coveted "2017 Mayfair Halloween Decoration Contest Winner" lawn signs to the Best Decorated Homes and Businesses in Mayfair!
Prizes will be awarded in the following Three (3) Categories:
Category 1 - Top 3 Best Decorated Corners, Singles or Twin Homes in Mayfair
Category 2 - Top 3 Best Decorated Rowhomes in Mayfair
Category 3 - Top 3 Best Decorated Businesses in Mayfair
This Contest is open to all residents and businesses of Mayfair who either currently are, or hopefully will become Mayfair Civic Association Members in the future.
How it works:
• Starting on October 1st you can nominate your home, or a neighbor's home that you feel best captures the spirit of Halloween. 
• Nominations can be submitted via Facebook on the Mayfair Civic Association Facebook page, or you can email the nomination to
• Nominations will be added to our "2017 Mayfair Halloween Decoration Contest Google Map" so that everyone can take a tour of Mayfair and see the eerie entries for themselves. The Map will be posted shortly after the entries begin to come in, and it will updated daily on Facebook as well as the website.
• As a courtesy to our surrounding neighbors who live outside of the Mayfair Civic Association boarders and are ineligible to win the contest, we will be more than happy to include your home on the Contest Map so that visitors to Mayfair can stop by and enjoy your decorations as well!
• Scare up the outside of your house with all things Halloween, and throughout the week of October 16th - 22nd, our judges will be cruising around looking for the Scariest / Spookiest / Best Decorated homes and businesses in Mayfair!
• Prizes will be awarded to the 6 homes in Mayfair (and 3 businesses) that best capture the Spirit of Halloween!
• On Wednesday October 25th, our Contest winners will be announced, and prizes generously donated by our Mayfair Business Association Members along with the "2017 Mayfair Halloween Decoration Contest Winner" lawn signs beautifully created by Aztec Signs will be delivered that evening.

Together we can ensure that Mayfair continues to be a great place to visit, and an awesome place to live!
