Happy Wednesday and day after Election Day! Looking for some fun things to do this week? We got you covered. Here’s a look at what you can find in Duluth:
First up, some fun tonight! Glensheen kicks off their November Wednesday night series – Secrets of Glensheen. The Collections Manager at the estate, Milissa Brooks Ojibway, will showcase various objects from the Glensheen collection that have been hidden out of sight from visitors. Guests will be able to ask questions and get up close – cool! This is free and open to the public, and runs from 7-8pm.
Also tonight – the Salvation Army Red Kettle Kick-off at Bentleyville! From 5-7pm, enjoy this free family event at Bayfront Festival Park. This event offers the once-a-year opportunity to go inside the 128-foot Bentleyville Tree if you bring a food item or new toy to donate for the Salvation Army. Bentleyville opens November 17.
