Santa was amazing. He was in character, interacted with the kids and adults as well. The kids truly believed. I will definitely be using him next year. And most definitely referring him to others. Thank you for making my party an unforgettable event.
Santa was the star of our party! The kids absolutely loved him!!

Santa Al Hockaday was amazing! We booked him for a corporate event and he was a huge hit at the party! Not only did he arrive early, but he interacted with all of the guests and took several photos, which is exactly what I asked him to do. We had a photo booth at our event and he made it such a fun experience! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a Santa and I will definitely book him again!

Thank you for your kind words! I had a lot of fun at your event!
Santa Al Hockaday is by FAR the best Santa in Dallas/DFW! Our company was lucky enough to book Santa Al for our Annual Christmas event in Dallas, TX. Santa Al Hockaday was amazing to work with. Santa Al remained “true to character” from the very first moment that we spoke to him on the phone. Santa Al was professional, organized, and even arrived to our event early (fully dressed & still in character), just as he had promised. We truly appreciated the way that Santa Al took the time (and care) to methodically plan his arrival, to make absolutely certain that his arrival was discreet - which he pulled off without a hitch! When Santa Al came out to see the kids, they were thrilled to see him, and one little boy was so excited that he ran full speed towards Santa Al, and jumped into his arms (which we were lucky enough to capture in a photo). That kind of moment can’t be bought, and is a priceless memory that that little boy (and his parents) will have forever. THANK YOU Santa Al Hockaday, for the amazing experience, and lasting lifetime memories, that you helped us create. We can't wait to book you again next year, and hope you enjoy the pictures that we have shared here! #PricelessMomentsCaptured #SantaAlHockaday #MakingChristmasMemoriesWithSantaAlHockaday
Santa Al came to my business where I was hosting a "Santa & Me" event. He was quick to come up with stories to tell the kids about the reindeer, elves, Mrs. Claus and the North Pole. The kids just ate it up and we had an absolute blast! He was so accommodating and let us take gobs of pictures with him to help promote this same event for next year. As a pottery studio we were putting kid's hand prints on plates they would use for Santa's cookies and Santa Al even let us paint his hand in front of the kids to put his print with theirs. I had planned to do this before the event, but it just worked out great for the kids to see me paint Santa's hand. I've already asked Santa back for next year! :)
