Storm Causes Major Damage at Bentleyville Christmas Attraction in Duluth
I have a feeling you're about to see real-life Christmas magic happen at Bentleyville USA in Duluth. High winds from yesterday's winter storm wreaked havoc on the holiday attraction which is America’s largest free lighting display. Hundreds of thousands of visitors enjoy Bentleyville each year around Christmas and now organizers are searching for volunteers to perform a Christmas-eve miracle and help put it back together.
The images below were shared on the attraction's Facebook page along with a message that said, "Bentleyville has suffered EXTENSIVE damage. We are asking any and all people that are able to assist Bentleyville, starting at 9:30 am on Thursday. We are in GREAT NEED of help to be able to try and reopen. Damage is heartbreaking."
Organizers and volunteers will brave the cold today to fix as much as they can with the goal of reopening the light-show as soon as possible. If you or someone you know lives in that area and are available to help, you can contact them through their Facebook page. I'm hopeful we'll see "Minnesota Nice" perform a Christmas miracle. Bentleyville USA was scheduled to be open through New Year's Eve.
