Santa for hire! Personal Visits by Santa

Santa has over 30 years of experience delivering gifts, entertaining children, and bringing holiday cheer to your home and get-togethers!

He can visit your home (or party) to drop off gifts, serve as a Master of Ceremonies, perform traditional visits where children of all ages tell Santa what they would like for Christmas, or just be a guest and bring holiday cheer.  Like him to do something else?  Just ask!

Mrs. Clause is also available to accompany Santa.

Our Santa is a "real beard" Santa, which adds magic and authenticity to his visits.

Gift wrapping, event planning, set up, decorating, and photo services also available for additional costs.  Discounts giving for non-profits that benefit children.  See below for details.

Additional Info:

~We anticipate Santa to be a "real beard" Santa for the 2014 season.  However, if he is not able to, he does have a high quality theatrical beard.  Client will be notified at least 24 hours of scheduled visit if Santa will have a real beard or not.  If not, the client can choose to cancel the visit at no cost or will receive a discounted rate.

~Santa will always be accompanied by at least one other person; he will never "visit" by himself or out of costume. 

~He prefers not to eat in costume. 

~Santa loves pets, but sometimes they don't love him, please be prepared to restrain or kennel them if he asks. 

~Santa will also bring candy canes for each child (and usually each member of the party); you can request that he not do this, or if you would like to substitute something else, in which case the client will need to provide and assume costs for the substitution.
 

~We try our best to be there on time, but cannot guarantee an on time arrival, especially when dealing with high traffic times, inclement weather, or busy nights (like Christmas Eve), so please be patient and understand that there are things Santa cannot control.  One of Santa's helpers will notify you when they are enroute and provide you with updates as to their ETA while in transit.  Typically though, Santa arrives early.  Billing adjustments can be made onsite if Santa is more than 30 minutes late; time adjustments are subject to availability.


~For events longer than 3 hours, additional requests maybe made to accommodate Santa.

~Santa and his companion(s) / helper(s) have the right to terminate the visit at any time if either party feels unsafe for any reason.  Client will still be accountable for payment of full scheduled visit in case of termination for any reason. 

~Client also assumes all liability in the instance of any injury or accident to any members of the party or Santa and his companion(s).
