Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) -- The transformation of Duluth's Bayfront Park into the largest holiday light show is now underway.

About 30 volunteers started setting up this years Bentleyville Tour of Lights in Duluth's Bayfront Festival Park.

They were focused on unloading, organizing and repairing lights and decorations.

More experienced technicians will begin setting up lights in about a month.

The Bentleyville tour of lights will begin on Saturday, Nov. 17.

It will be open for 40 nights, the longest duration since the tour started.

"We are always retiring decorations, we are bringing in new displays," Nathan Bentley, the Bentleyville Tour of Lights organizer said. "We are changing things up so that when people walk through they are hopefully in aw with something they are going to see for the first time or something they didn't see last time."

Volunteers are needed every Saturday and Sunday from 9 to 4 through Sunday Oct. 21.

Help is also needed on Wednesday nights in October.

Volunteers need to be at least 18 years old, however no experience is required.

Groups of 5 or more can sign up with Mary by calling 218-740-3522 or e-mail mary@bentleyvilleusa.org.
