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 MayfairCivicAssociation@yahoo.com
.
• Nominations will be added to our "2018 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 MayfairCivicAssociation.com website.
.
• As a courtesy to our surrounding neighbors who live outside of the Mayfair Civic Association borders 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 15th - 21st, 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 24th, our Contest winners will be announced, and prizes generously donated by our Mayfair Business Association Members along with the "2018 Mayfair Halloween Decoration Contest Winner" lawn signs beautifully created by Aztec Signs will be delivered that evening.
.
.
The Rules
.
1. All entries must reside within the Mayfair Civic Association boundaries (found on MayfairCivicAssociation.com)

PROPS
This contest is a team effort, and without the hard work of the Mayfair Civic Association, the Mayfair Business Association, the Mayfair Business Improvement District, and our neighbors in Mayfair who go all out during the Halloween season, it would not be possible ... PROPS to you all!
Together we can ensure that Mayfair continues to be a great place to visit, and an awesome place to live!
