The Bentleyville Tour of Lights is back in action with a walk-through display. And Nathan Bentley said they've added a few new things, like unicorns and a big present you can take pictures in.

For the 2021 season, they anticipate over 250,000 visitors will stroll through the Bentleyville light display.  

The Cookie House will give out over 300,000 cookies and 275,000 cups of hot chocolate and coffee.  

30 cords of wood will be used to help keep everyone warm on those chilly evenings.

Santa & Mrs. Claus are on site to visit with families. Both will be standing near the line of guests to hear Christmas wishes and take photos. To ensure safety of guests and staff, visitors will not be permitted to sit on Santa’s lap. Each child 10 and under who visit with Santa will receive a knit winter hat and cookies! 

They are also the official drop-off location for new unwrapped toys and nonperishable food items for the Salvation Army. Toys and food collected at Bentleyville are distributed to families in: Duluth, Hibbing, International Falls, Cloquet, Virginia, Grand Rapids, and Superior.

Parking is $10.

The display is open Sunday-Thursday, 5-9pm, and Friday-Saturday, 5-10pm, till the 27th.
