Last winter a film crew descended upon Northfield to make a movie - Love Always, Santa. They filmed at several sites around town including residences, Division Street businesses and Bridge Square. Here's the Hallmark movie page with the preview.
It was pretty exciting to have a movie being filmed in town. Even though it was cold we went out as a family on walks around town several times to check out the action. Everyone was talking about it, happy that our little town was getting some big attention.
The movie's producers have local connections but a big part of bringing the film industry to sites in Minnesota is the state's rebate program. I hope it continues. It'll be fun to watch the movie and say, "Hey! I know that place."
