It seemingly airs around the clock for weeks during the Christmas season and an annual Christmas Eve marathon showing attracts tens of millions of viewers. Many parts of the film are now iconic: the leg lamp, th tongue sticking to the flagpole, the bunny suit, the official Red Ryder, carbine action, 200-shot, range model air rifle and so on.

Walk under the bridge at Shooters by the Leif Erikson bust
One of the things we like most about the Flats in Cleveland is that they were, and most still are, working areas. The diverse bridges work, ships carry ore and other materials and it is all mixed in with the entertainment establishments. For years there has been a bust of Viking Explorer Leif Erikson near the entrance to Shooters on the west bank of Cleveland's Flats.

On a recent visit, Dan Hanson noticed that now you can walk under the piece of the bridge from the parking lot to the Cuyahoga River and see some of the ironwork of the bridge.
