The City of Dahlonega is looking a lot like Christmas. That’s because a made for television Christmas movie for the HALLMARK Channel is setting up production there.
Filming for “Shooting Christmas” began this week and Dahlonega Director of Tourism David Zunker said on WDUN’s Afternoon News Wrap Wednesday that the production crews were hard at work, as there’s a quick turnaround time. The filming should be wrapped by October 13, one day ahead of Gold Rush on October 14, Zucker said.
“They were going to scout seven different communities, towns within Georgia and they were going to do it over a weekend. They came to Dahlonega and never left,” Zunker said. “They loved what they saw immediately, they saw the possibilities, they loved the historic public square downtown and they saw a number of buildings that were going to work for them.” more
