The Jingle Bus!

Downtown Duluth will again offer free shuttle service on Friday and Saturday nights for those attending Bentleyville Tour of Lights at Bayfront Park.

The magnificent lighting display opens on Saturday, November 18th with shuttles allowing individuals to park in the business district and hop on board the “Jingle Bus” which runs approximately every 10-30 minutes.

The Canal Park Jingle Bus stop is at Buchanan Street near Canal Park Drive, while the Downtown Jingle Bus travels along Superior Street with stops at Radisson Hotel, Holiday Center and near First Avenue East in front of the Tech Village.  This new location at the Tech Village replaces the former bus stop at Greysolon.

Jingle Buses are yellow buses with color-coded banners for each route and stops will be marked with a sign.

Esquire Magazine listed Duluth as #3 on their 27 Best Christmas Towns to Put on Your Holiday Bucket List! With notable attractions like Bentleyville USA and Duluth Winter Village, we couldn't agree more that this is what Christmas magic looks like ✨


"Thousands flock to Duluth during the holidays to witness Bentleyville, a massive light display. The event is free to the public and runs through November and December. There's also a scenic train journey along Lake Superior, as well as a bustling Christmas village set up in front of the historic Glensheen mansion."
