If these photos look like something out of a Hallmark movie...well - they are! It's officially Christmas in Dahlonega, and our little gift shop is abuzz with holiday cheer. This weekend's crowd welcomed Santa at the annual parade and also enjoyed the magic of almost every tree on our town square decked out in white lights. Did you see the ladies in the photo above? They were all wearing matching shirts that read "Girls Weekend, Cheaper than Therapy, Dahlonega 2019, #hallmarkjunkies." Now how adorable are they?

Christmas in Homestead. We mean...Dahlonega

Well, HO-HO-HOllywood came calling in 2016 when the Hallmark movie Christmas in Homestead was filmed in Dahlonega. It truly was a sight to see! Filming took place in September and early October, and fake snow and decorations covered the square. Seemed strange that the leaves were still on their trees...and that some were changing. Didn't quite match the 'snow' on the ground! But watch the movie's hard to tell it wasn't winter!

PS - Our apologies for the subtitles! This is the best video we could find online.

Lights, Camera, Action!! It's Christmas in Homestead

Last October, the Hallmark Channel and a few actors and actresses descended upon Dahlonega's town square to film "Christmas in Homestead."  It was so interesting watching our little town be transformed into a winter wonderland, complete with snow and decorations everywhere you looked.  Want to see what the Gold City looks like in pictures?  Here's the movie in it's entirety.  See if you can spot any familiar D-town landmarks!
