The results are in for the most popular Christmas tree at the 6th Annual Bucks County Holiday Treefest, and the winner is: “Trim the Pine and Drink Some Wine,” sponsored and decorated by 263 Marketplace.
The festival at the county Visitors Center on Street Road in Bensalem featured 25 themed trees during the holiday season, with the nearly 5,000 people who attended able to vote for their favorite. The winning tree was decked out in big, red bows; white flowers; flowing ribbons; and wine bottles.
