Businesses owners along Main Street spent the weekend putting up Christmas decorations for the perfect holiday flare.

The manager of Vidler's Five and Dime says his staff is ready to welcome film crews into the store.

"We found out the movie company wanted to shoot inside our store and right outside on the sidewalk so we've been busy decorating for Christmas," said Billy Mest.

Director and producer Fred and Chris Olen Ray know the area well. They shot "A Prince for Christmas" in East Aurora back in 2015. 

No word when "A Special Christmas Dinner" will be released.
