When: Sat., Dec. 7 2013
The first annual A Christmas Story Run will kick off today at 9 a.m. in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the film. Participants can choose to run a 5K or a 10K race, both of which begin in Public Square near the Horseshoe Casino and Terminal Tower. The 5K race is from Public Square to the A Christmas Story House and Museum. The 10K race goes from Public Square to the A Christmas Story House and Museum, and then back to Public Square. Participants are encouraged to dress up like Ralphie or to run in a leg lamp costume or a bunny suit like the one that Aunt Clara gave Ralphie for Christmas. There's also a Leg Lamp Fun Run that starts at 10:30 a.m. in Public Square. Registration is closed, but this will be a fun one to watch. And organizers are still looking for volunteers to help out with the logistics. (Rus) achristmasstoryhouse.com.
