Santa Fred is so good with the kids. He talks directly to each one. And he looks like the real thing!!!
Santa Fred and the Mrs was so great last night! Stories and songs! Perfect story on being different and accepted by all and the girls learned sign to Jingle Bells!!
Indy Santa Fred was a hit at our Christmas Party. He looked great and was very good with the children and adults. He even recorded a personal video message for one of my sisters who’s son couldn’t be there. We had a great time with Indy Santa Fred
They made a wonderful grand entrance complete with ringing jingle bells and started off with a story told by Santa. The kids absolutely loved getting to sit with Santa and Mrs Claus. We would certainly recommend them!!!
Santa was awesome with my 9 grandkids
Santa came to our house Christmas Eve and was fabulous! He is very authentic and spent time with us all. He read "The Night Before Christmas." And he also allowed us to video him for the grandchildren that were not there.
I highly recommend him!
Santa Fred was outstanding! I sent Santa some small background stories on a few people attending our party. He had each of them memorized and was able to add on his own humor when delivering the presents to them. Santa Fred was also very accommodating. I shipped my presents ahead of time so that Santa could deliver them you our party. I would highly recommend. The Best!
Another Christmas Eve with Santa Fred and the Mrs! They are both so kind and fun to our grandaughter’s. Thank you so much Santa!
Santa Fred did an exceptional job!
Santa Fred was great. He really engaged the kids with stories and his delightful Santa laugh.

Santa Fred was funny, loving with kids and brought a lot of Christmas Spirit to our party. We look forward to having him with us again next year.
Great experience - Great stories!
Santa Indy Fred did wonderful interacting with the kids! Thank you and we hope to have him back next year!!
Santa and Mrs. Claus were awesome again this year..actually I can’t believe they topped last year but they did!! Our granddaughters were in “awe” of Santa and especially his “magic book” he brought! The oldest, who is 9, said “my friends at school said there was no such thing as Santa but when he brought out his magical book I knew they were wrong, just wait till I tell them “!!! A big thank you and a very Merry Christmas to our FAVORITE Santa and Mrs. Claus...
Santa Fred was professional and performed brilliantly.
Response from Indy Santa Fred:
Thank you so much. It is always a joy to visit with and have pictures by the tree with company employees and guest. The location created a wonderful holiday flair too.
Very authentic and great with the kiddos! Would highly recommend!!
Santa Fred was a joy. He was professional and wonderful with the children. His suit was very nice and his beard was real! A pleasure to work with and we will ask for him again.
Response from Indy Santa Fred:
The Christmas season will be soon, after two more holidays, and was hoping to again visit with the family.
I had to cancel but Santa Fred was very gracious and also stayed in contact with me. I will try again next year and definitely ask for him.

Community Citizenship Award
(The following is the speech that was given when Indy Santa Fred was presented with the 2013 Community Citizenship Award by Re/Max.)
"Indy Santa Fred is recognized as Santa everywhere he goes. With his real Santa beard, he has brought joy and happiness to countless children and organizations for more than 20 years.
Indy Santa Fred has helped with fundraisers for Anna's House, Servant's Heart Pantry, and Kendra's Call for Komfort just to name a few. He has generated funds for numerous schools, daycares, and churches, many of the donations going to Children's Miracle Network.
In his community, Santa Fred would qualify as a good Samaritan. He often visits the elderly in their homes. He has been seen pushing stalled cars in his Santa suit. And even without the red suit, he takes the time to stop and smile for a picture when asked. Santa Fred believes that the Christmas spirit should be spread year-round. And when his 'regular clients' that visit Indy Santa give him gifts to give others, he makes sure that those gifts get to Riley Children's Hospital. For his many years of hard work and dedication, we present the 2013 Community Citizenship award to Indy Santa Fred."
