  • Beginning in mid November this park is transformed by an army of local volunteers armed with over four million lights into a Christmas wonderland of colour! This is a free walk through tour and to sweeten the magic free hot chocolate, cookies, and popcorn is offered. Near the central Xmas tree there is a plaza where numerous wood fires are available for marshmallow roasting also at no charge! This is a lovely community effort and it draws over 275,000 visitors through the Christmas Season! Bravo Duluth!
  • We were at Bentlyville to see the light show. It was a beautiful night for it and as a result, there were a lot of people. The light show was fun but the lines for the cookies, hot chocolate, and Santa were extremely long. The marshmallow lines were fast. If you want to experience everything, I recommend going when it is cold so fewer people are out.
  • We visited Bentyville (spelling?). It was great! We will incorporate this trip into our holiday activities once a year. The staff were very friendly and fun
  • There's always a musical festival during the spring and summer, but right now the most beautiful light show is happening! Bentleyville is a gorgeous place, and fun for all ages. I really recommend checking out this beautiful piece of Duluth
  • Wonderful! If you like lights it is definitely worth the trip. $5 parking, dress warm, have fully charged cameras and phones for pictures. Great for kids!
