HGTV Hosts Holiday Celebration in NYC

Home and Garden TV hosts "Make It Home for the Holidays," a four-day celebration in New York City's Greeley Square Park, on 33rd St. and 6th Ave.

All events are open to the public and offer visitors the opportunity to record personalized video greetings with the network's popular on-air talent.

To kickoff the celebration Thursday, a "Parade of Pedaling Santas," representing the 50 states and the District of Columbia, will take a pedi-cab ride to Greeley Square Park.

The Santas will transport HGTV's charitable contribution to Rebuilding Together, a national non-profit organization that ensures that homeowners in need can live in warmth, safety and independence.

In addition, visitors will have a chance to enter a daily on-site drawing for a $2,500 travel certificate to help their families "Make it Home for the Holidays."

Thursday, Nov. 30, from 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.

51 Pedaling Santas, including Elvis Santa, Black Jack Santa, Shopping Santa and Fiesta Santa will arrive between 10:15 and 10:30 a.m.
