Chesapeake Shores filming in Nanaimo

Downtown streets packed with equipment and crews Thursday for TV series filming

Downtown Nanaimo streets were a bit busier this week as crews, equipment and actors crowded sidewalks to film scenes for a season three episode of the Hallmark Channel television series Chesapeake Shores.

Multiple scenes were shot Thursday at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre and on Victoria Crescent throughout the morning and evening, which provided some entertainment for passersby who stopped to watch the filming in progress.
