Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - The cold can be harsh for the older generation, but that doesn't mean they have to miss out on all the Christmas lights at Bentleyville.

Senior citizens got to enjoy a virtual tour of Bentlyville and a hot meal at the DECC tonight.

Photographer Dennis O'Harra took the photos and put them in a slide show.

Nathan Bentley was also at the banquet answering questions about the park.

This was part of the 26th annual holiday banquet dinner for seniors.

"Christmas isn't always a happy time necessarily, it can also become a sad time, so having fun entertainment and going home on a high note is real important to us, that we lift the spirits of our guests, and I know we will be able to do that," said Gail Walkowiak the special events coordinator.

Two hundred and twenty seniors were bussed to the DECC for the banquet.
