The most entertaining Santa ever! This Santa started as an additional offering from The Balloon Pirates LLC children's entertainment company, but over the past four years he has become so popular and in demand that we gave him his own listing! What sets this Santa apart? The short answer is he actually does stuff! He doesn't just sit in a chair looking majestic (not that there's anything wrong with looking majestic), he interacts with the children! He does trust falls! He poses with the children in the most outrageous ways! When this Santa comes to visit he comes to play! Children respond to him and love him cause he's not afraid to play with them at their level!
The morning of the visit Santa cancelled he made a mistake when booking a prior event.
Response from Best Santa Ever!:
Jim is absolutely correct, and I was mortified that I had to cancel. A previously booked gig was accidentally saved to the calendar as an AM gig when it should have been a PM gig. I didn't discover the mistake until that morning when I called the other client to verify arrival proceedure.
At that point the only thing I could do was honor the gig that had been booked first, which unfortunately meant Jims gig had to be either rescheduled or cancelled. None of the times I still had available worked for Jim so I cancelled with sincerest apologies and, of course, a full refund.
I am truly sorry Jim.
Santa was great with the kids! Very energetic and more than a sit and take pictures Santa! The kids loved him! Will use Dan “The best Santa” again’!!!! He will be my first choice for next year!!!
My fourteen year old son hasn't believed for several years now, but the clingy mom in me still makes him get a picture with santa each year. He always acts so embarresed, and I know he hates that I make him do it, but Santa Daniel managed to change that. He took the boys outside and started doing trust falls with them till eventually Santa was falling backwards off the front steps into the waiting arms of the six teenage boys at the party! Best Santa pictures ever!
Response from Best Santa Ever!:
Nothing say's "fun" like being able to see an old tradition in a new light! I'm glad I was able to bring a little joy back to the Santa experience for your son and his friends. Thank you for having me!
Price Range: $125/hh. $175/1h. $250/2h. $100/1 additional hour.
Santa started as a Santa voice actor 10 years ago doing live telephone calls for children over the Christmas holidays. He worked hard on creating a fun believable Santa personality and studied voice, including tone, pitch and timbre so that those calls would be as realistic as possible. This Santa doesn't say Ho! Ho! Ho!, he BELTS it in the deepest most genuine belly laugh you've ever heard!
When it came time to bring Santa to life beyond his voice on the phone, he paid equal attention to the details of Santa's look. When choosing his Santa suit, he walked straight past all the discount racks with the cheap shoddy and fake looking suites, and ordered a top of the line professional suite and then had a professional tailor alter it till It fit just perfectly. He also wasn't satisfied with many of the cheap looking accessories that you see on most others, so this crafty Santa visited the craft/fabric stores, and made his own!
Is this a "real beard" Santa? Yes! He didn't start out that way. He started out using premium quality theatrical beards (the kind they use on stage and in the movies). They would glue to his face in such a way that your camera wouldn't even be able to spot it in a close up photo. But in 2015 he started growing out his own beard so that he can let the children pull on it for proof (and cause it makes for a really funny picture!)
Let Santa dazzle you with his magic of toy making as he twists up a fantastic wreath made entirely out of balloons! Want Santa to read "The Night Before Christmas" or the biblical account of the first Christmas? No Problem!
Did I mention that Santa can sing! He has a deep rich baritone voice and would love to sing some Christmas carols with you around the piano, go Christmas Caroling to your neighbors house, or even bring some music with him or his guitar to perform a mini concert of a few of your favorite popular Christmas songs!
So what would you like Santa to do with you this year? How about bowling with Santa? Santa can meet you at Gravitopia or your favorite trampoline park to jump with the kids. Imagine that photo on a Christmas card! How much crazy fun would you like to have with Santa? Go carts? Bungee jumping? Sky diving? The options are endless!
Santa is available for home visits, public appearances, private parties, company banquets, church pot-lucks, school assemblies, classroom parties, pageants, parades, frat / sorority parties, and television or youtube comercials!
We look forward to talking to you soon!

Set up needs change for each event, but for photo driven events, (ie a large line of children waiting to sit with Santa and have their picture taken)Santa needs to be positioned in a place where the background will lend itself to great photos.
Santa is a big man and needs a LARGE, armless, very sturdy chair, with a sturdy side / end table on either side.
This is VERY flexible and Santa can usually work in whatever environment necessary.
