A Christmas Story
9-year-old Ralphie Parker wants nothing more for Christmas than a Red Ryder BB gun, no matter what its cost in eyes. On his quest to prove the virtue of his cause, Ralphie encounters discouraging teachers, unfriendly Santas, the Queen Mother of Dirty Words, and worst of all, a bright pink set of bunny pajamas. Released in 1983 and based on the semifictional anecdotes of memoirist Jean Shepherd, A Christmas Story swiftly cemented itself as a holiday tradition, and today families continue to respond to its warm humor.<p>
Racine Civic Centre
The Racine Civic Centre’s campus sprawls along the shores of Lake Michigan, its three venues bustling with nearly every kind of celebration throughout the year. The strains of symphony concerts often resound through Festival Hall; the neoclassical 1920s-era Memorial Hall conceals eight different spaces behind its imposing stone façade; and warm weather scatters the merriment of assorted festivals and seagull family reunions across the lawn of Festival Park.
