HGTV Show Featuring Niagara Families to Air Dec. 10

 HGTV Show Featuring Niagara Families to Air Dec. 10

‘Holiday Battle on the Block’, an HGTV show featuring six Niagara families, will air its first episode featuring Niagara Falls’ DeVeaux neighborhood on Dec. 10 at 8 p.m. and an episode featuring Youngstown will air Dec. 17 at 8 p.m..

The cable network was in town for two weeks in Dec. 2009 to film the families as they were put to the challenge in a festive holiday decorating face-off.  During the show, each family was given a healthy budget to design, shop and build something special within 48 hours as they competed for “Best Holiday House” and neighborhood bragging rights. The winners were decided by a panel of local judges.

Both shows will re-air on Dec. 24 at noon and 12:30 p.m.. “Holiday Battle on the Block” is a Cineflix (Holiday Battle) Inc production in association with Scripps Networks LLC (HGTV USA).
