LAKE CHELAN– A local community will make its TV appearance tonight on the Hallmark Channel during its annual Countdown to Christmas programming. This year, Lake Chelan is subtly featured in the movie Christmas in the Air.
Producers of the movie seemed to pull inspiration from local Christmas celebrations such as the Small Town Christmas event hosted each year by the Historic Downtown Chelan Association.
For Executive Director, Mike Steele at the Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce, this was a happy surprise. Still says, “We are thrilled Lake Chelan’s name is used for the setting in this magical holiday movie. It is our hope that the real beauty, spirit of the season and community of the Lake Chelan Valley that is used to inspire the setting of this movie brings joy to all that view the film.”
Although the movie was not filmed in Lake Chelan, a number of clips throughout make references to the town.
Christmas in the Air plays tonight at 7pm on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries.
