Snowball Fight in Hancock Park

Hundreds of locals answered the call for “background artists” to play townspeople in the Hallmark film "Christmas in Homestead," which has now wrapped up three weeks of filming in Dahlonega. Last Wednesday these background artists dressed in winter coats, scarves and hats and waited patiently until the near midnight filming of a “snowball” fight in Hancock Park. Many stayed until after 4 AM to mingle in the park among “snow” drifts and lighted reindeer for a skating rink scene - on a rink that had disappeared, along with the snow and reindeer, by the next day.

Ivy Spraker and Neva Garrett recruited and coordinated assignments for the extras.

I had such a great experience filming in Dahlonega. The city and county representatives are extremely helpful and eager to support film productions in any way possible. It’s pretty remarkable to come to a small, quaint mountain town like this to find such a professional, production ready atmosphere. Not only are you dealing with great people, but you’re also in one of the prettiest areas in Georgia!  I hope to be back soon!

Downtown Dahlonega is a sparkling example of how careful planning, small business support and historic preservation can combine to create a thriving downtown. Its downtown district, art galleries, restored theater and courthouse stand out in North Georgia, making Dahlonega a viable place to do business.
