Photos: Repairing storm-ravaged Bentleyville Tour of Lights
Volunteers joined staff to ready the popular Duluth attraction for reopening.
Duluth's Bentleyville Tour of Lights drive-thru display was closed Wednesday due to a blizzard and again Thursday as subzero temperatures and bone-chilling wind were forecast.
“We are grateful to everyone who came down to help repair, but due to the cold, we cannot safely open tonight," Bentleyville Executive Director Nathan Bentley said in a news release Thursday. "We appreciate the public’s understanding and hope to reopen tomorrow.”
Volunteers were recruited to reassemble the display Thursday morning after the blizzard toppled barricades, signs and other elements.
The attraction is scheduled to be open Friday and Saturday from 5-10 p.m. and Sunday from 5-9 p.m.
