When you are planning for an upcoming holiday event for the Christmas season, a visit from Santa Claus can add excitement, interest, and personalization to your guests. As you are making arrangements for Santa to visit, there are some details you need to decide on before you make your Santa selection and book his services. The following provides you with some tips and recommendations to help you hire a Santa to visit your Christmas event.
Find the Right Santa
There are a lot of different Santas available for hire in your area and nationwide. However, the more realistic Santa and his visit to your event are, the more magical and authentic the experience will be for everyone attending. For this reason, you can hire a realistic Santa with his own natural beard and Santa personality along with some other details that you can arrange for.
A Santa who works professionally is going to have his own authentic suit complete with black leather boots, white Santa gloves, and a plush Santa bag. You can also hire a Santa who comes with his own Mrs. Claus to help out with children and the event entertainment. Or you might find that you want to add on an elf or two as Santa assistants.
Choose the Type of Visit
Depending on your location and the area of your party, there may be plenty of Santas available for hire nearby. However, you might need to hire a Santa to come in from out of town or one who will travel anywhere to get to your event. You can also arrange for a virtual Santa visit over a video call to someone who is not able to attend the event or is in the hospital.
When Santa arrives for a physical visit, he can read a Christmas story, take photos, talk with children, or entertain with some details about the North Pole and his reindeer. He can also pass out prearranged gifts, candy canes, or other items specific to your event.
Although it may be many months until Christmas, you will need to book your Santa visit as early as possible because Santa's schedule will fill up completely for the Christmas season. Make arrangements and finalize your party date and time so you can choose the right Santa for your event and reserve the time that is best for your event, such as on a weekend when most of your guests will be able to attend.
