      EVENT DETAILS
      MACY'S SANTA "MAKES A WISH" IN MODESTO

      WHAT:
      Santa Claus is coming to town! Giving the reindeer time off for good behavior, Santa will arrive on a shiny Macy’s tour bus as he stops to visit children of all ages in Modesto. Welcoming one-and-all to join in the festivities, Santa will remind everyone about the magic of the Christmas season with a special reading and a few magical moments with the jolly old elf. Santa will arrive at the Make-A-Wish Foundation to meet wish children and the students of Natomas Park Elementary School before his appearance later that evening at Macy’s Vintage Faire.

      MORE:
      Launching his national tour last year as part of Macy’s popular “Believe” campaign, Santa’s National Tour will once again take him on a whirlwind trip to visit 26 cities in 26 days across America. Motoring from New York City (where he will have just finished Macy’s Parade), Santa’s National Tour started on November 27 in Sioux Falls, SD, and concludes on December 22 in Indianapolis, IN. All along the way, Macy’s National Santa Tour will give children from coast to coast the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet the man himself!

      As it has for the past two years, Macy’s “Believe” campaign invites children to mail letters to Santa using Macy’s Santa Mail Letterboxes. Macy’s donates $1 for each letter mailed in store, up to $1 million, to the Make-A-Wish Foundation®.

      to track Santa on his journey across the U.S.!

      WHO:
      Santa Claus was first introduced to his home-away-from-home at Macy’s on 14th Street in 1862. As time passed, Macy’s expanded, moving Santa to the store’s new location on 34th Street in 1902. In 1924, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade® stepped off for the first time to usher in the season and bring Santa to the store to unveil Macy’s famous Christmas windows. In 1947, Santa was immortalized in the classic film “Miracle on 34th Street,” and his home at Macy’s was proclaimed. Many decades later, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade® has become the official start of the holiday season each year, bringing the one-and-only Santa Claus to town.
