A Christmas Story
What are the most memorable scenes for you from the classic holiday movie, "A Christmas Story"? The pink bunny suit, the "evil" elves at the department store, or Christmas dinner at the Chinese restaurant. If you love these scenes, then you will love the "A Christmas Story" Comes Homes exhibit at the Indiana Welcome Center
The "A Christmas Story" Comes Home exhibit focuses on 6 animatronic window displays from Macy's Department Store in New York featuring different scenes of the iconic movie. Come see the Bumpus hounds as they steal the family Christmas dinner, watch as dad lights the leg lamp in the living room window or standby as Flick getting his tongue stuck to the flagpole.
The short stories which the movie is based on were written by Jean Shepard, a native of Hammond, about his experiences growing up in the area. Shepard was also the voice of the older Ralphie, the narrator of the movie.
Other activities that take place during the exhibit include the Mommy's Little Piggy Mashed Potato Eating Contest, the Oh Fuuudge Relay Race and photos taken atop Santa's Mountain with a slide, just like in the movie!
The exhibit is on display from November through mid-January at the Indiana Welcome Center in Hammond. Click here for more information.
