A year full of curve balls needs some familiar holiday cheer. This year, said cheer is delivered in-vehicle or to your desired screen, on-demand or by appointment.
Bentlyville: Tour of Lights
Nov. 21—Dec. 27
700 Railroad St, Duluth, MN
Throw on the coffee and make the drive to not-so-distant-Duluth, for a classic holiday memory-maker. For 2020, Bentlyville has implemented a COVID-friendly workaround (or drivearound) to bring another year of festive frolicking. The completely in-car experience promises to dazzle as always, while keeping you extra cozy (and safe) this season. This year’s exhibit also serves as a Salvation Army donation drop for toys and food. Cost is $10 per car, no commercial vehicles, limos, or buses. Masks are not required for guests in cars. Drive safe!
