Bentleyville: Testing lights, 2020 looking bright


DULUTH, MN -- Bentleyville is still over two months away, but volunteers are already hard at work making sure everything is perfect, even during the pandemic.

The Bentleyville crew started the set up this week.

Volunteer Travis Stolp spent the day getting the lights in order.

He said the lights stay in the trees all year, but they often need to be fixed.

Even though this year's tour of lights will be a drive-thru experience, he said it will be just as beautiful.

"For me, I do the lights in the trees, and nothing has changed. We go around testing them and replacing them when need be," said Stolp.

Stolp says the hardest part about this year is waiting to set up light tunnels because there are industrial mats that have to go in for the cars to drive on.

Bentleyville opens in Bayfront Park November 21.

It will cost $10 for people to participate in the new drive-thru experience.
