Mayfair 2018 Is Set for May 12

Mayfair 2018

Each year, the Madrona Community Council marshalls abundant resources to bring a child- and family-friendly Mayfair event to the neighborhood.  This year the event is scheduled for Saturday, May 12.  The fun begins at Al Larkins Park at about 9:15 when children, family, friends, strollers, dogs, bikes, trikes, unicycles, and anything else gather to visit with one another, tie balloons on bikes, climb up to see the Seattle Fire Department truck and wait for the parade to begin.  And begin it does at 9:30am, with participants wending their way south on 34th Ave. to the Madrona Playfield.  There participants will be greeted by volunteers who’ve set up play stations for pony rides, gymnastics, bouncy houses, and much, much more.

Cambium will be on hand offering Pots for Tots, the Goldmark branch of the Seattle Library will provide readings, history tips on Madrona, and opportunities to sign up for library cards.  Epiphany Parish will pop corn, Madrona Grace will spin sugar into cotton candy, the Madrona Elementary PTSA will sell hotdogs, St. Clouds will offer yummy treats, and there will be a bake sale as well.  Harvard Avenue School will offer face painting.  Funding is provided by the MCC and by our sponsors:  Kristine Losh at Ewing and Clark, Recology, and more to come.  For information about volunteer opportunities prior to or on the day or to sponsor the event, contact Rob Ward at dr5ward@comcast.net.
