COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) — There may be something to that organic mix.

For the first time in the event’s nine-year history, Columbus’ downtown Wassail Fest has a repeat Wassail Meister. A record 2,500 votes were cast by 3,500 downtown visitors to 31 participating businesses during Friday’s (12-7) event.

And for the second straight year, Melissa Rushing and her team at Bella Derma was voted the best.

The Wassail Meister trophy was presented Tuesday (12-11) by Main Street Columbus and Magnolia Directory.

Rushing attributes the success of her recipe to all-organic ingredients.

Riverhill Chevron was second, the Attic was third, the Commercial Dispatch fourth and Renee Reedy Photography fifth.
