We are now just a over a couple of weeks away from Christmas, so this weekend Bentleyville will be very busy.  If you plan on parking near the popular attraction, you'll need to be very patient.  If you don't want to drive into the insanity, there is a free shuttle option available.

Again this year, the Greater Downtown Council is providing free shuttle service to  Bentleyville on Friday and Saturday nights.

The "Jingle Bus" offers two routes, one in Canal Park and another Downtown along Superior Street.  You can park nearby, away from the endless line of cars, and board the bus to see the lights.

Jingle Buses will have color-coded banners for each route and stops should be clealy marked.

The Canal Park Route will be marked candy cane red and is running every 20 minutes from 4:30 p.m. – 9:50 p.m from Buchanan Street near Canal Park Drive.

The Downtown Route will be marked green and is running every 30 minutes from 4:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. from the following pick-up locations:

  • Greysolon Plaza
  • Holiday Center
  • Radisson Hotel

Return service is also available to both locations beginning at 4:40 p.m.
