We don't need Thanksgiving to arrive to get into the Christmas spirit in the Northland.  Bentleyville was officially open to the public November 17th, why wait until December to experience the amazing light show in Bayfront Festival Park?

Bentleyville is open 7 days a week.  The hours of operation are:

Sunday through Thursday:  5pm -9pm
Friday and Saturday: 5pm - 10pm

When you go, there are 3 things you must bring with you, besides the obvious holiday cheer:

  1. Hat and extra layer of clothes.  Even if you are dressed appropriately warm when you leave your house, it can get very cold next to Lake Superior with strong winds.  Bring extra gear, you can always leave it in the car if you don't need it.
  2. Sweet tooth.  There will be hot chocolate available, candy canes, and other goodies.  Indulge, it's the holidays!
  3. Ice skates.  Take a little extra time and lace up the skates and hit the rink just outside the gate.  If there's snow falling from the sky, even better!

If the weather outside is frightful, Bentleyville may choose not to open.  They usually make that decision at 3pm and they post it clearly on their website.  To check, simply visit BentleyvilleUsa.org. on the day in question.

Happy Holidays!
