Explore the Bayfront Festival Park – Bentleyville Tour of Lights, an immersive holiday lighting spectacular! Transforming the scenic Bayfront Festival Park, nestled on the shores of Lake Superior in Downtown Duluth, we adorn it with a breathtaking array of over 5,000,000 dazzling lights. Our event enjoys immense popularity, often drawing large crowds. To savor a more serene experience, many guests opt for late-evening visits or choose weekdays.

Indulge in Bentleyville Treats – Gratitude to our generous sponsors and dedicated volunteers allows us to provide complimentary treats for all our cherished guests! Kickstart your culinary journey at the Cookie House, where you can savor piping-hot cocoa or coffee paired with delightful cookies. Continue your delectable adventure at the Popcorn Factory for a taste of freshly popped, warm popcorn. And be sure to swing by our Marshmallow Hut to collect a couple of marshmallows, perfect for toasting over the numerous fires that keep our guests cozy. No need to fret; we also offer graham crackers and chocolate bars to transform your toasted marshmallow into a mouthwatering s’more!
