It’s time to embrace the first full weekend of January and 2023.

Glensheen Mansion

Glensheen Community Day

If you haven’t had a chance to take a Christmas tour of the Glensheen Mansion, Sunday is your opportunity. It’s Community Day, meaning you can tour the mansion at the grounds for free. The Christmas decor and Spirit of the Lights display outside come down after Sunday. Just check in at the Ticket House before entering the grounds.

Friday and Saturday nights at the DECC Symphony Hall is the Banff Mountain Film Festival. The Duluth Cross Country Ski Club is hosting it, and proceeds will go to local ski projects. Advance tickets are $20. Films shown are selected from 400 entries. The show starts at 7 p.m. each night.
