Fraser Valley – Country Living magazine, based out of Birmingham, Alabama recently published a piece on Hallmark (and Lifetime) Channel Christmas MOW’s (Movie of the Week – made for television). Specifically , how many of their 36 yuletide movies (in 2018) were shot in and around the Fraser Valley.
In early November, journalist Jennifer Aldrich from Country Living, contacted FVN’s Don Lehn for a brief interview and a thumbnail sketch of what the Valley looks like and how it is perfectly suited for the film industry, let alone the Christmas season.
The bulk of which was shot in Chilliwack and Maple Ridge, with some pick ups in Abbotsford.
On the Chilliwack portion of the shoot :
“Mill Street is in the heart of downtown Chilliwack—and the real street seems just as festive as the scenes in the movie. The city hosts jolly get-togethers like the Light Up Downtown, a decorating event that was launched to make the destination “a magical Christmas experience.” You can even apply to decorate a storefront this season! “
The on line response from readers and followers in the Fraser Valley was amazing, and a tip of the hat to Country Living Magazine for the shout out.
