Mayfair 2013 will celebrate cultures, costumes, and food from around the world. So get ready to embark on a voyage of adventure at Rosedale Park on May 10th and 11th. The Mayfair preview evening will be on Friday, May 10th from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. The full all-day Mayfair will run on Saturday, May 11th.
In case you haven't been there the last couple of years, the Friday evening is a giant neighbourhood party you really shouldn't miss. The carnival rides will all be running, and they look great under the lights! There'll be a special regifting Silent Auction. All the Mayfair food venues will be open, for burgers, hot dogs, fries, candy floss - and some special gourmet options. And of course the Beer Garden will be operating from 5:00 p.m. till closing - a great place to meet friends, or bring the entire family for dinner in the park!
Saturday morning starts with the Mayfair Parades which collect kids and families from Rosedale and Moore Park, arriving in the park at 9:00 a.m. Kids who dress up in their costumes from anywhere around the world win prizes in the parade.
The day continues with rides for all ages from Worlds Finest Shows, the Mayfair Midway of games with awesome prizes, bingo, home baking, track and field events, and the Kiddie Zone in the rink - with bouncy castles, face painting, wacky hair, the Round the World pavilion, and the regifting silent auction (see ad on p. x). In addition, there'll be the beer garden, the outdoor food court, live music on the main stage… and more!
Of course, all this happens only because over 1,000 volunteers make it possible. We've started the planning, and it would be great if you'd join our team! If you can volunteer at Mayfair please call our Volunteer Hotline at (416) 922-3714 ext 310, or email our Volunteer Liaison, Katharine Lake-Berz, at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll be delighted to hear from you!
