Remember 9-year-old Ralphie who wants only one thing for Christmas - Red Ryder Range Shot 200 BB gun. Everyone from his mom to Santa himself tells the boy he doesn't need such a dangerous toy because "you'll shoot your eye out." Or how about that atrocious leg lamp that Ralphie's father won and adores? A living room vignette from that iconic 1983 movie A Christmas Story is part of the new Festival of Trees at the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center. Stop by the vignette and pose for a holiday photo. Maybe even dress up in those Ralphie-hated pink bunny onesies. Festival of Trees runs Nov. 22 - Jan. 3. A Christmas Story will be shown Dec. 13 and 14 at 2 p.m. Other activities during Festival of Trees include crafts, holiday selfie photo station and Santa visit. The Indiana Historical Society is headquartered in the history center.
- Holiday Attractions: "Writing down New Year's resolutions seems to make them easier to accomplish. Share your 2015 resolutions at the history center on Jan. 3 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and get a coupon for free admission any time during the year."
- Best for Holiday Attractions Because: A Christmas Story is a holiday classic and to take a photo in a living room vignette from that movie is a treat.
