We took a ton of photos, so I am going to share this visit in 2 posts. Make sure you come back tomorrow for the rest!
Upon arrival, you can take your photo in a mini porch display with a leg lamp.
Yes, my husband is overjoyed feeling up that leg...
Moving down, there were 6 window displays in all set up, each showing a different scene from the movie.
The first one shows the department store window where the kids all admired the holiday toys...
and Ralphie's Red Ryder BB Gun!
Next up was the school house...
with the ever famous scene involving one tongue frozen to a flagpole.
Who cares what the neighbors think? That leg lamp is Fab-U-Lous! or is that Fra-Gil-Ey? Who knows? I never did study Italian.
Add in the scene with some super grumpy elves, and a Santa who's lap I wouldn't want to sit on...
which Allison was quick to point out it wasn't the elf that kicked the kids down the slide. Still pretty cool though.
At each display they also had the video of each clip from the scenes playing, just in case you couldn't remember what that particular spot was about:
This one was showing the dog/turkey stealing scene.
|The dogs were electronic, so it looked like they were really tearing into the turkey.|
And the last display was of Ralphie dreaming of saving the day with his trusted Red Ryder BB Gun!
I was really impressed with the amount of detail they put into each display. And the whole event was free to the public!
What is your favorite scene from A Christmas Story?
