At the Soup and Wine Event on Sunday, Hilton Garden Inn took home the honor this year as the Best Mushroom Soup in the Delaware Valley. It was a close battle between five excellent mushroom soups. On the wine side, Galer Estate Winery and Paradocx Vineyards tied for the Best Wine.

The celebration drew record crowds. Parking was scarce, the streets were packed, but the visitors were enjoying themselves. Here are a few photos from the big day!
