This Beloved Florida City Is the Backdrop to a New Hallmark Movie
The flick is set to hit the Hallmark Channel this spring.
Yes, we love a good Hallmark Christmas movie any time of year, but in the heart of winter, we're certainly craving a taste of spring. Now, we've got a new Hallmark movie to look forward to — Garden Party — set in the lovely Florida town of St. Petersburg.
Currently, the team is wrapping up filming around St. Pete, reports the Tampa Bay Times. According to St. Petersburg-Clearwater film commissioner Tony Armer, spots like Vinoy Park and the Mahaffey Theater are featured in the movie. "They are all over St. Petersburg. It’s a nice little love letter to St. Pete," he also quips to the Tampa Bay Times.
The movie, as executive producer Lincoln Lageson shared in the piece, centers around a woman who continues her father's legacy by keeping the community garden he built in St. Pete going for the town. The fate of the community green space is called into question when a condo developer swoops in at the space. As the Tampa Bay Times' Paul Guzzo puts it "[Lageson] would not divulge if the garden is saved or if the two sides fall in love. But, come on."
Currently, there's no scheduled air date for the movie but we know this is one Hallmark movie we'll definitely want to invite the girls over to enjoy.
