Candy Cane Christmas Filming Locations
Phoebe and Eric find their way to each other in the small town surrounded by Christmas cheer. The movie was predominantly shot in Ontario, Canada. Here are the specific detail concerning the filming and cast of the movie!
‘Candy Cane Christmas’ was shot in the Manotick area of Ottawa. The community of Manotick is in the rural south part of the city of Ottawa, located on the Rideau River. It was founded in 1864 and became part of the city in 2001, but only recently started receiving attention from filmmakers. With its small-town charm, beautiful homes, historical buildings, and quaint streets, Manotick offers great possibilities for filming.
The fact that people welcome the cast and crew and cooperate with production houses makes it all the more likable as a filming location. For filming the movie, the local restaurants and stores were requested to keep their Christmas decorations up till January 25, 2020, and the owners were happy to do so.
Many local businesses, restaurants, and shops are included in the scenes. The Seeing Green Flower Shop that Phoebe owns is actually the Terra Plants and Flowers. McDonough’s Your Independent Grocer stands in for the supermarket, and the clinic where Eric is a veterinarian is the Village of Manotick Animal Hospital.
