Bentleyville Tour of Lights in Bayfront Festival Park

November 14, 2013

We have Tiki Tom and holiday helpers, we have cocoa and cookies, we have an 80 degree waterpark on a cold winter’s day, and we have the easiest, most fun way to get to Bentleyville at Bayfront Festival Park – the train on Friday and Saturdays provided by the North Shore Scenic Railroad.  Enjoy no hassles of driving into Canal Park and finding parking.  Take the train from the Edgewater Hotel to the greatest holiday light show.  Bentleyville opens November 23 and runs through December 28.


What began as simply decorating the home for the holidays has now become the largest holiday light display in America.  With a 128-foot tree as its centerpiece, Bentleyville grows each year with expanded displays and offerings for visitors so even if you came last year; it will be different this year.


Admission is free, however; donations are graciously accepted at various points in the park.  Visitors to Duluth’s Bentleyville will enjoy free coffee, cocoa and cookies as well as meeting various holiday characters including Santa and his reindeer. Visitors are also encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy or non-perishable food item for the Salvation Army.


Stay at the toasty Edgewater and let us make your holiday experience one to remember!  Your room includes use of all facilities at the Edgewater as well as access to the train to Bentleyville on Friday & Saturday nights.  The kids will enjoy waiting for the train with Mrs. Claus and Tiki Tom while they sip on cocoa and nibble on cookies.  Reserve now as these date book quickly!
