Believe Again

Are you ready to Believe Again?

On December 7 and 14, begin your day-long journey through a real-life vintage Christmas experience. The Believe Again Christmas Cheer Challenge will have you and your family collecting cheer throughout town with one mission – to save the Grinch and Christmas. The more cheer you collect, you’ll be entered to win one of two $500 shopping sprees, courtesy of Dolan Auto Group.

Christmas cheer can be found at participating shops, restaurants, museums and at other activities taking place during the day. Maps and details available at the Believe Again tent in the center of town.

Get the ultimate Christmas experience in Virginia City with a sleigh ride to meet Santa Claus! Hop on the sleigh in our Victorian wonderland and ride through town on a journey to the Historic Fourth Ward School Museum & Archives where you’ll meet the star himself. Admission to the museum is included. Bring your own camera.  Sleigh rides are part of our Believe Again celebration taking place December 7 and 14. Cost is $15 for adults, $10 for kids ages 3-12 and free for kids under 2.

Come on out, bring the whole family and leave Believing Again!
