(sponsored by the City of Benicia in partnership with Benicia Main Street Merchant Open House)
Our voting occurred as the holidays were approaching, so it’s no surprise that Benicia Tree Lighting won the prestige of Best Event for Solano County. You may be surprised to hear that the people behind the Benicia Tree Lighting are our very own Benicia Parks & Community Services Department, and this award makes them our winningest recipient for 2017 with a total of three Local’s Choice Awards! They’re like the La La Land to our Golden Globes (if the swept the Oscars, then those too!). They can’t be stopped! Which is great as they’re doing wonderful things. “The Annual City of Benicia Tree Lighting is a success due to the incredible teamwork and partnerships of all City Departments and Benicia Main Street,” said Ann Dunleavy, Superintendent of Parks & Community Services. “The Tree Lighting and Holiday Merchant Open House are some of the most magical nights here in Benicia … it’s so much fun to see our community come together to celebrate the holiday season!” We’ve got some time to go before getting to the next tree lighting, but set a reminder now just in case.
