I have a confession.  I have never experienced Bentleyville in person, like ever.  Not even before it was moved to Bayfront Festival Park.  But, after the controversy and the threat that things may change in the future,  I'm going this Friday.  After all, it's going to close on December 26 and that, my friends, may be Bentleyville history.  Come celebrate the last day of Bentleyville for 2012!

This year, Bentleyville vill close on  Wednesday, December 26th at the annual "Warmer by the Lake" celebration brought to you by City of Duluth Parks and Recreation.

Besides being the last day to enjoy the Bentleyville Tour of Lights, there will be skating, marshmallows to roast and entertainment, as well as other winter fun-filled activities.  Plan on staying for the fireworks display in the evening!

The bonfires will be blazin' to keep everyone warm and the hot chocolate will be flowing.

Plus, admission and parking will be free.
