(Bucks County, PA) Visit Bucks County (VBC) has been spreading holiday cheer since the kick-off of the 9th Annual Bucks County Holiday TreeFest on November 25th.
[[endteaser]]Twenty-five uniquely-themed trees were beautifully showcased at the Bucks County Visitor Center, each sponsored by a VBC partner. Winners were announced at a January 6th award ceremony.
More than 6,000 people attended this season-long event at the Visitor Center in Bensalem, which was beautifully transformed into a joyous winter wonderland. Local talent including school choirs, orchestras and pianists joined in the festivities as they filled the 25-foot cathedral ceilings with holiday music for a sweet melodic treat. Santa made an appearance on select Sundays for picture taking with all family members-including your favorite family pet.
