Fans Jet To Ohio To Relive A Christmas Story Magic
U.S. film fans made a pilgrimage to Cleveland, Ohio over the weekend - to visit the home of the Parkers in beloved festive classic A Christmas Story.
Devotees travelled from all over America to celebrate the film's 25th anniversary with a convention, trips to the house where the movie was shot and the chance to meet cast members.
The 1983 film, starring former child actor Peter Billingsley, wasn't a big hit when it was first released, but it has since become a must-see annual favourite, with back-to-back showings making up a 24-hour marathon every Christmas Day on U.S. TV networks.
More than 3,000 film fans attended the A Christmas Story convention at Cleveland's Renaissance Hotel.
