Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

DULUTH, MN– Bentleyville officials say vandals have struck again as crews prepare to set up for the area’s largest holiday light display.

According to a Facebook post, damage appears to include graffiti to a semi truck carrying decorations.

After seeing similar vandalism and crimes last season, Bentleyville is now asking for volunteers to secure the park during the evenings and overnight hours.

Those interested in volunteering should send Bentleyville USA a direct message on Facebook or e-mail Tim at coordinator@bentleyvilleusa.org with your contact information.

It’s unclear exactly when the most recent vandalism took place.

Incidents last year included damage to Bentleyville’s gift shop, thieves stealing money out of a donation collection container and stolen equipment.

Bentleyville is set to open in Duluth’s Bayfront Park on November 23. The season runs through December 28.
