Bentleyville Preparations Continue as Opening Day Nears

Bentleyville Volunteers Bag and Tag Merchandise

Bentleyville starts on November 19th and many people don’t see or realize the work that goes on behind the scenes of the popular light festival.

Today, volunteers are working to get merchandise ready for the three stores that are open during Bentleyville.

These shops help to offset the cost of putting on the free event.

Volunteers met at Advantage Emblem to bag and tag 17 pallets worth of merchandise.

Merchandise includes sweatshirts, t–shirts, mugs, and much more.

Nathan Bentley, the Executive Director, said “We have an awesome core group of volunteers but we are always wanting new volunteers.”

Starting this Friday you can sign up as an on–site volunteer to serve hot chocolate or help with parking.
