The most real things in the world are the things we can't see.

Santa Claus does not exist. Or does he? One doubting Hero Boy, lying in bed Christmas Eve night, hears the sound of reindeer bells from Santa's sleigh. Then, a steam engine's roar and train whistle! The conductor (Tom Hanks) invites him onboard to join other pajama-clad children on a magical ride to the North Pole. He embarks on a journey of self-discovery, receiving an extraordinary gift only those who still believe in Santa can experience.


Our relaunch plan adheres to the guidance from Governor Brown, the Oregon Health Authority, and the Deschutes County Health Services.
