We’re crossing our fingers that the sun makes an appearance for Mayfair tomorrow, but if not, we’ll be there with our rain boots and umbrellas to celebrate anyway! Here’s a reminder of the schedule of events:
Today, Friday 5/9
Bring your kids’ bike or trike to the Shelterhouse today from 4:00-5:00 to decorate for the bike parade tomorrow. Streamers, ribbon, tape and scissors will be provided!
7:00-9:00 a.m. – If you couldn’t make it to bike decorating on Friday, meet at Cupcake Royale Saturday morning for more decorating and chatting with your neighbors before the event begins. Buy a coffee and get a free slice of pumpkin bread as a breakfast treat!

10:30 – 12:00 – Madrona K-8 Silent Auction and Raffle at the tennis courts
Along with the scheduled events, there are many other great activities happening throughout the morning, including pony rides, two bouncy houses, face painting, a photobooth, screenprinting (bring a t-shirt or tote to get printed with the Mayfair logo!), Seattle Gymnastics Academy obstacle course, breakdancing lessons, miniature clay pot garden-making, food from Pritty Boys and St. Cloud’s, and the Madrona Community Council will be selling water, hot dogs and bake sale goodies. Don’t forget to stop by the tennis courts for the Madrona K-8 auction to bid on an amazing list of auction items and enter the raffle to win a trip to Palm Springs!
Happy May Day, everyone! The first of the month means that Madrona Mayfair is just around the corner, taking place next Saturday, May 10. Along with the bike parade and Recess Monkey performance, the Madrona K-8 silent auction and raffle are going to be big draws this year, so make sure to buy a few raffle tickets and bid on some of the amazing auction items. Here’s a small sampling of what you’ll have a chance to bid on!
Don’t forget to enter the raffle, as well, for a chance to win the grand prize – a trip to warm and sunny PALM SPRINGS! Also up for grabs in the raffle are a Microsoft Surface tablet and Recess Monkey Dance Kits. Raffle tickets are $5.00.
There are MANY more auction items available, so make sure to stop by the auction site at the Madrona playground between 10:00 and 11:30 on the day of Mayfair to check everything out. All funds raised will go toward supporting arts and music enrichment programming, providing classroom technology and supplies and covering field trip expenses at Madrona K-8.
