Bentleyville Tour of Lights Opening Night 2020
Duluth’s mega Christmas-light spectacular is a drive-through experience in 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The attraction is open Nov. 21 to Dec. 27.
Drivers must access the event from Garfield Avenue and approach Bentleyville from the eastbound lane of Railroad Street. Signs will point drivers in the proper direction. There will be no access to Bentleyville from Fifth Avenue West or Lake Avenue this year.
Portions of Fifth Avenue West near the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center will close during the event. Drivers leaving Bentleyville will be directed to exit the event onto Harbor Drive.
Most GPS and computer mapping devices will not give correct directions to access the event.
Motorists who approach Bentleyville from the wrong direction will be directed to Garfield Avenue to turn around and line up for access.
While traffic will likely back up on the eastbound lane of Railroad Street during peak times of the event, motorists should be aware that parking is not allowed on Railroad Street.
Access to Pier B Resort and other Railroad Street businesses will remain open during the event, but traffic congestion may cause delays.
The event will open each night at 5 p.m., closing at 9 p.m. on Sundays through Thursdays and 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. For additional information visit bentleyvilleusa.org.
