Christmas comes early to Hope’s downtown

Hallmark sweeps into Fraser Valley town, brings along the holidays

Filming is set to begin in Hope on Wednesday, with crews preparing the backdrops around Hope Cinema and Hope Memorial Park.

And once again, the timeframe is Christmas.

Wallace Street was decked out for the holidays, with wreaths, Christmas trees, baubles and more, thanks to a busy crew working on both sides of the street. It’s unclear yet what the production’s name is, but it is a Hallmark film.

Crew members said that filming would begin sometime Wednesday and run throughout the week.

This is not the first time Hope was the backdrop for a Christmas movie for Hallmark. Winter’s Dream was shot here in 2017, and starred Dean Cain and Kristy Swanson. The lead actors of this week’s filming activity have not been made public.
