Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) -- According to Duluth Mayor Don Ness's facebook page, Bentleyville will be staying at Bayfront Festival Park for three more years.

Mayor said at a news conference that the contract was extended through 2015.

"Nathan and I met yesterday to work out the framework for a new agreement that will keep this wonderful community-based celebration in Duluth through 2015. I want to thank Nathan, his board members, volunteers, Amy Norris, Dan Russell, and everyone who took the time to express your appreciation for Bentleyville. It’s a great partnership and I’m absolutely thrilled that it will continue.

What a great announcement to make as we head into Christmas and the New Year - it’s a great early Christmas present for us all. Especially all of those kids who love Bentleyville - forget the annoyances - it's really about those kids.

Remember, there’s still a full week of Bentleyville this year (open until December 26th) – if you go, please thank Nathan and the volunteers for their commitment to continue this event in Duluth."
