A window scene from the annual "A Christmas Story" Comes Home exhibit at the Indiana Welcome Center in Hammond will be spending this holiday season in a special place downstate.   According to Speros A. Batistatos, president and CEO of the South Shore Convention and Visitors Authority, the organization wanted to share Northwest Indiana’s holiday cheer with Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis
“Watching the holiday classic ‘A Christmas Story’ has become tradition for many families. We wanted to provide Riley Hospital for Children’s patients and families the chance to experience the annual exhibit during their time at Riley,” said Batistatos. In addition to providing one of the window scenes for display, the South Shore Convention and Visitors Authority will be coordinating several special events. The special events will offer patients and families the opportunity to experience Christmas traditions while at Riley Hospital for Children.
The “A Christmas Story” Comes Home exhibit, which is presented in agreement with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, will open at the Indiana Welcome Center on Saturday, Nov. 9 and run through Sunday, Jan. 5. The Indiana Welcome Center is open seven days a week from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and is located at 7770 Corinne Drive, Hammond, Indiana 46323.
