SEPTA’s All District Vehicle Decoration Competition took place this morning. The annual showdown entered its fourth year this year, with entries hailing from eight different bus and trolley districts around the city.

You can see all eight contestant-vehicles in all their finery this Saturday, at Dilworth Park, from 12 pm to 4 pm.

Who took home the trophy? First, we should say that in our hearts, they were all winners.
