Viewers were asked to VOTE for their favorite display as “Best in Show” and “Most Educational” awards were given. The announcement of the winners occurred on Sunday, August 7th between at 2:30 pm.

While the Warner’s Safe Bottles & Posters display took both ribbons, you could rely on every person who visited the displays to say “wow” to the outstanding  Benicia Glass – Natures Tiffany display by Michael & Karen Peart. Amazing and well worth the effort as this was the finest display ever of this glass type.

Thank you Russell Umbraco and Richard Siri for making this and other displays possible.
