Santa pays a visit to Mayfair for the annual tree lighting

Fresh off a visit to Fox Chase Friday and Tacony Saturday, Santa will stop in Mayfair Sunday for the neighborhood’s annual tree-lighting ceremony.

The event begins at 4 p.m. at 7216-18 Frankford Ave. next to Frusco’s, with Thanksgiving Parade Grand Marshall Ed Kelly.

Below, check out photos from the 2010 event.

The Friends of Mayfair Memorial Playground, in conjunction with Avenue Chiropractic, will host a toys for tots collection site. Donations will also be collected at Avenue Chiropractic for those unable to attend the event.
