Tis the season for all things festive and nothing is more festive in the Twin Ports than the one and only Bentleyville.

Not only is Bentleyville back in action for the 2021 season, but it is extra special because last year the event had to be tweaked a bit in light of the pandemic. They offered it as a drive-thru experience, which was pretty creative, but it is nice to have it back how it always is as a walking attraction.

They have also amped up security this year, announcing that they added several more security cameras throughout the grounds this year. (This makes sense because even though it is the holiday season, the Grinch is definitely still around!)

Now, Bentleyville is back and better than ever. Whether you are a Twin Ports resident or a tourist that drives from afar for the occasion, there are some general things that everyone just knows about Bentleyville.
