The Greater Cleveland Film Commission celebrated the 40th anniversary of ‘A Christmas Story’ with original cast members and over 2,000 fans from 30 states.
The cast and fans participated in various activities and enjoyed a meet and greet with the cast.
Every fan also received their own real-life version of Ralphie’s Red Ryder BB gun.
Peter Billingsley, who played Ralphie in the film, said, "I’m so grateful to the Greater Cleveland Film Commission and the City of Cleveland for hosting such a fun and nostalgic event. It's hard to believe it’s been 40 years since a small movie crew rolled into the city. From Higbees to downtown, and of course, ‘Good old Cleveland Street,’ the city and the fans have embraced A Christmas Story and made its enduring success possible.”
