Spring may be trying to burst out in Winnipeg today.

But it's Christmas on the William R. Clement Parkway this weekend.

At least, it is for film crews shooting a movie, starring Anne Heche.

Early Saturday around 5 a.m., crews were in River Heights shooting trees decked out in Christmas lights around 5 a.m.

They''ll be filming in Charleswood though, Saturday and Sunday from 6 p.m. to 7 a.m.

Film production will shut down the Parkway between Roblin Boulevard and Grant Avenue during those times.
