According to Speros A. Batistatos, president and CEO of the South Shore CVA, the organization wanted to share the Indiana Welcome Center's holiday cheer with the popular agricultural attraction.
"Watching the holiday classic ‘A Christmas Story' has become tradition for many families. Fair Oaks Farms is a very family-oriented attraction. We hope that families enjoy experiencing a piece of the exhibit while exploring the farm," said Batistatos.
The "A Christmas Story" Comes Home exhibit, which is presented in agreement with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, opens at the Indiana Welcome Center on Saturday, Nov. 8 and runs through Sunday, Jan. 4.
