Twelve Story Tall Christmas Tree New at Bentleyville Tour of Lights
Bentleyville Tour of Lights is pleased to announce the addition of a twelve story (120 feet) tall Christmas tree to their Bayfront Festival Park display this year. As tall as Downtown Duluth’s Medical Arts building and rising more than twice the height of New York City’s famous Rockefeller Center Christmas tree, this steel fabricated tree covered with 50,000 LED lights will be located in the center of Bayfront Park.
The Bentleyville tree is being constructed by volunteer iron workers at the Iron Workers Local 512. Iron workers will weld together 17 tons of iron building the tree to the height of 120 feet. This tree was made possible through the generosity from Krech Ojard, Iron Workers Local 512, Dynamic Structural Steel LLC, Northern Industrial Erectors from Grand Rapids, CR Meyers from Coleraine, Shelton Excavating, St. Joseph Equipment, JP Concrete, Twin Ports Concrete Pumping, Arrowhead Concrete and Jeff Foster Trucking.
Showcased as the “Tallest Christmas Tree in the United States” the Bentleyville tree will be the premier attraction as people experience the magic of nearly 3 million lights illuminating Bayfront Festival Park from November 20th-December 26th, Sunday-Thursday 5:00-9:00 PM, Friday and Saturday 5:00-10:00 PM. Admission is free.
