I'm Santa Bill Marles. I want to give you a lifelong memory. I'm available to attend a variety of events- photo shoots, weddings, family reunions, adult parties, children's parties, charity events, business promotions, Breakfast With Santa and more.
I also operate a Santa Claus delivery service. I will, as Santa Claus, deliver a present to special people in your life. Contact me for details.
Please contact early as Santa's time is limited and books quickly! Right now weekday bookings are especially sought and a discount might apply if your event or delivery is scheduled for that time.
I carry liability insurance through Nationwide Santas. Documents available on request.
Although he arrived quite a bit earlier than planned, Santa Bill was terrific. It would have been better if he had come after the children had left the table and when I'd had the chance to prime them.
Bill was fantastic. He was jolly and friendly and had his own beard. He was accomodating to our needs and a great communicator via email, always answering questions quickly and fully. The kids loved him, and my grams was his biggest fan. Highly reccomended.
Price Range: $150 for half an hour and up.
Gig Length: 30 - 2400 minutes
Insurance: $2,000,000 - I get my liability insurance through Nationwide Santas. Insurance provider is HUB International of Windsor, Ontario. Account MARLW11
What to Expect
Hopefully I will spread good cheer. I'm never critical of children. That is not Santa's role. I like to make them feel good about themselves and help build their self esteem.
Look carefully at my profile photo. What you see is what you get. If you hire me, you get Santa Bill. Not Santa Bob or Santa Tom, or somebody else the advertiser called in to cover a busy December weekend! . I am not an agency!
Since I am on my own, you don't have to pay for both the performer AND for his representative. I work cheaper than the Santas represented by an agent. You don't have to deal with the third party and I think that is an important point.
I have been a real-bearded Santa Claus since 2010. This makes me a year-round Santa. Whether I'm walking through a supermarket aisle, driving in traffic, standing in front of a video camera, or sitting with children on my knee, people recognize me for what I am. Santa Claus!.
Even my complexion is rosy. My hair and beard are naturally white, not dyed. So when even the staunchest skeptics see the slight variations of white, they know they are looking at the REAL Santa Claus.
I have a distinct heartwarming laugh and a strong voice that everyone recognizes as my own. I'm fun and I'm funny!
I love children! I'm a kid at heart. In fact, some people say I'm really a kid in disguise! Well OK, a rather big kid.
I can supply pictures and a resume, upon request. I have worked as Santa all over the lower mainland of Vancouver, British Columbia, from West Vancouver to Abbotsford and Maple Ridge and points in between.
I am an actor, having been Santa among other roles in commercials, music videos, short films and feature films. Check me out at (link hidden)
