Collingswood Mayfair

I was fortunate enough to be able to participate in this years Mayfair in Collingswood, NJ. This year was the Mayfairs 30th anniversary and my fourth year in attendance. Collingswood is located across the Delaware River from Philadelphia right outside of Camden, NJ. It's a very eclectic town, full of neat little shoppes and nice restaurants with reasonably priced food...but Collingswood is a dry town, so BYOB if you would like some wine with your dinner.

Mayfair has 4 stages of entertainment, a kidszone, farmers market, strolling entertainers, a classic car show and lots of arts and crafts. I'm so mad at myself for forgetting my camera but if you click on this link , it will take you to the official website that has pictures of previous years festivities.

It was a beautiful day and the crowds turned out. So if you are ever in the Philadelphia area on Memorial Day weekend, make the trip across the river and visit the lovely little town of Collingswood, it's certainly worth the trip.

Oh, and if you come, do come early and be sure to pick up some locally grown strawberries at the farmers market...they are to die for!
