A few weeks ago we asked you to submit your photos in order to crown Acadiana's Most Beautiful Christmas Tree. After narrowing the entries down to our top nine, we asked you to vote for your favorite tree. Well the time has come to crown a winner and we are proud to congratulate...

Julie Duplantis, who won the $500 Paul Michael gift certificate as the winner of Acadiana's Most Beautiful Christmas Tree contest.

Thank you to all who submitted photos and to all who voted. Every tree that was submitted was beautiful, but unfortunately we can only have one winner. We hope that your holiday season is just as beautiful as all those gorgeous trees!

And again, CONGRATULATIONS JULIE!
