  5. Spirit of the Lights

    Spirit of the Lights

    3300 London Rd
    Duluth, MN 55804
    Call: (218) 726-8910

    Spirit of the Lights is an outdoor light display that originated in Park Point at the home of Marcia Hales.

    The display is FREE and open to the public.

    The display is celebrated for its intimate and natural feel. Many of the motifs and displays are in memory of individuals or in recognition of meaningful moments. To say this is a uniquely special display is an understatement. And, we can’t thank Marcia enough for choosing Glensheen as the new home for these lights, which have such a storied past.

    As part of celebrating the many traditions, the event will continue to be FREE. Free cider and cookies encourage attendees to slow down and enjoy the warm, cozy atmosphere.

    It will be open daily to the public December 10th – December 28th (closed Dec. 24 & 25).

    For those that have been to the Park Point display in years past, we welcome you to find your name in the guestbooks of Christmas past. For those looking to create new traditions (and, of course, continue old ones!) we welcome you to add your name to our new guest book, created specially to represent this new era of magic at Glensheen.

    TAKE A CANDLELIGHT TOUR OF THE MANSION
    While you’re here for the Spirit of the Lights display, Candlelight Christmas Tours in the mansion will also be available for purchase.

    Candlelight Christmas Tours are pure magic. Experience the dark mansion illuminated only by the glow of the 25 Christmas trees. Learn more and purchase Candlelight Christmas Tour tickets here.
