And the Winner is …

With the last ornament packed away. lights wrapped, carpets rolled up and the stands and sand bags tucked away for another year, we finally get down to the challenging task of counting the ballots and announcing a winner for Best Overall Tree.

The Parade of Trees once again extended onto the plaza at Lynn Valley Centre, so there were multiple places that collected votes.

It took a bit of time to gather everything and tally up.

We know you’ve been eagerly awaiting the results so without further ado, here they are . . . *drumroll please*
