History

From the events website: ‘With the success and growing  popularity, Bentleyville each year invests $150,000 adding  additional tunnels, fresh new light displays, new photo opportunities and new and exciting ways to captivate those that have made Bentleyville their holiday tradition.  Santa and Mrs. Claus now skydive in on opening night and fireworks mark the final night of each season.

Bentleyville has gone from a 2-month hobby to a year-round organization which involves  planning,  repairing, purchasing, fundraising and organizing now one of Minnesota’s largest events.  Nathan Bentley still has his pulse on every decision, working every set up day, every meeting and is at Bentleyville every night from lights on to lights off.  He is here right now strolling the park.  You may see him in his red staff coat and signature red  ball cap that says “Mayor Bentley”.

Attendance in 2017 surpassed 330,000 people strolling through the whimsical light display requiring new parking infrastructure and ways to transport the growing crowds. We are now operating 4 parking lots and as many as 12 buses transport our guests on busy nights.’

Entrance to the park is free, the organisations ask for donations.
