'Once Upon a Time' - Steveston's hit TV show calls it quits

Once Upon a Time, the TV show that put Steveston on the map back in 2011 has been axed when its 7th season comes to an end later this year.

The show which attracted a global cult following, was primarily shot in Steveston, AKA Storybrooke.

This show was so popular that fans travelled from all over the world to experience Steveston and explore the village. 

It became so hot that Tourism Richmond would promote special package deals for fans which included hotel stays and Disney-licensed 'Once' merchandise, such as t-shirts, tote bags, hoodies... sold at Tourism Richmond's Visitor Centre/Museum on Moncton Street along with self-guided walking maps of 'Storybrooke'.

Steveston merchants had mixed feelings about the show taking over large parts of 'the Village' during filming, with some revelling in the publicity, and others lamenting the distruption to their businesses.

It's funny - it's been said that tourism in Steveston has jumped about 75% since the show first aired - how much of a distruption to their business could that be?

Understandably, fans around the globe took to social media to express their dissappointment of the cancellation.

Are you going to miss the 'Steveston Buzz' created by 'Once'?  Did you have an opporunity to experience the gathering crowds during filming?
