An ABC show is filming at Bentleyville this week.

Bentleyville founder Nathan Bentley confirmed ABC’s “The Great Christmas Light Fight” — a reality competition show that pits over-the-top Christmas light displays against each other — is filming at Bentleyville this week. Bentley declined to answer additional questions, referring the News Tribune to a phone number for the TV show.

A woman answering the phone for the “‘The Great Christmas Light Fight’ team” told the News Tribune the Bentleyville episode will likely air in December 2019, the show’s seventh season, but did not offer additional details.

This isn’t the first time a Duluth location has been featured on the show. In 2015, the show featured Marcia Hales’ decorations on the Lake Superior side of Park Point.
