The kick off for the 30th Anniversary Celebration of “A Christmas Story” will take place on Thursday, July 25, 2013 at 10 a.m. Main events will commence on the front porch of the A Christmas Story House & Museum.

“A Christmas Story,” released in November 1983, is a holiday classic that tells the story of Ralphie Parker, a 1940’s 9-year-old who pulls out all the stops to obtain the ultimate Christmas present. The movie is based on the childhood memoirs of humorist Jean Shepherd, and portions were filmed in Cleveland in the early 1980s.
