We know that October tends to focus more heavily on Halloween, but we’re going to sneak an early post in about Christmas. Or, at least, A Christmas Story. We are sure that while some of our Cheapsters have never seen A Christmas Story, just as many others watch it every year as part of their holiday traditions. For fans of the movie, it may seem amazing that it celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, as it seems like we were all watching Ralphie descend the stairs in his pink bunny suit for the first time not so long ago.
Another thing that will probably seem amazing to our Cheapsters who love A Christmas Story is that one of them could win an overnight package for a family of four to meet some of the actors from the movie. The package includes an overnight hotel stay at the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Hammond, a meet and greet with the actors, a tour of an exhibit designed for the 30th anniversary, and even the chance to participate in Mommy’s Little Piggy Eating Contest. Finally, the winner of the contest will receive a 20% discount off merchandise in the gift shop, including A Christmas Story memorabilia. (It’s your big chance to grab a leg lamp.)
Click here to enter the contest. Like many of the contests we tell you about here, the Visit Indiana site will ask you for basic demographic information so that they can contact you if you win. The site doesn’t say how long you have to enter the contest, but are reasonably sure that winners will be announced before the exhibit opens on November 9. You’ll have plenty of competition, but we would love to see one of our Cheapsters win the grand prize. It may not be a BB gun or a secret Ovaltine message, but it’s pretty close.
