I had a great experience planning with Santa Mark. He answered all my questions in a timely manner and was able to be flexible with time slot for our event. When he came to our event, he was absolutely amazing! He and Mrs. Claus greeted all our park guests and everyone had a great experience meeting them. I was very happy with their interactions and enthusiasm they brought to the event. Will be booking again for a future date! Highly recommend :)
Santa Mark far exceeded our expectations. Kids and adults loved him and Mrs. Claus! They were both AMAZING with the kids. They were on time and was so sweet and jolly! We can’t wait to book him again.
I am a photographer and held Santa Sessions yesterday and this Santa and Mrs. Claus were AMAZING! They were so kind, patient and sweet with the kids and made them feel so at ease. Their outfits were beautiful and they were so easy and wonderful to work with. I will definitely be hiring them for next year!
Santa and Mrs Claus were once again a fabulous addition to our Christmas at St Gabriel's event this year!! We even moved the time of our event so we could have Santa Mark there. Godwilling, we will see him again next year!
I booked Santa Mark for our company event and he was phenomenal! The kids loved him, parents were pleased and we cant wait to have him back next year.
Great experience! Santa Mark was awesome!
Santa Mark was absolutely fabulous! His outfit was beautiful. Such a magical evening for the kiddos. Santa Mark gets 5 stars from me. It was like Santa actually made a special trip from the North Pole! Thank you Santa!!
He was the best part of the party! Happy to take lots of pics and help. Everyone loved him. So authentic, People are still talking about him. Hopefully I can book him next year.
Santa Mark was FAN-TAS-TIC! Beautiful! PERFECTO! The kids were in awe of him especially with his naughty/nice “upgraded” gadget. He read to them and had the most pleasant voice. Thank you so much! Hope to see you next year!
Santa Mark wasn't only one of the best looking Santas we've ever seen - he was also very personable with a great sense of humor! He made our event such a great success and we are already looking forward to throwing another party next year, hoping Santa Mark will be able to attend.
Response from Santa Mark:
I had a great time at your event. 2 hours of dogs coming in dressed in their festive outfits. Such fun! Would love to come back next year.
Santa was so wonderful with the kiddos! He engaged in the conversation and knew about the kind of toys they were asking. I would recommend his services to anyone!
Santa Mark was very accommodating with our event time. We very pleased.
Santa Mark and Mrs. Claus were great! Everyone loved having them at our party and we would definitely book them again.
We had the absolute best event with Santa Mark!! Santa even brought along Mrs. Claus which was amazing! Santa was in constant communication and made this as easy and seamless as possible. In all the years I've had Santa at my event - it has never been this smooth or this enjoyable!! Santa not only made and entrance, made each and every child's interaction personable and then interacted with the children as a group by playing games!! I am so impressed i want to continue to have Holiday parties through the rest of the year just to have Santa Mark come and play with us! I never had to worry about anything - they arrived on time and even called me right before so i could help them make their entrance (just as i had requested). Perfect Event!! And I thank you!! Thanks Santa!!
Santa Mark was the best! We surprised our son-in-law with Santa during our daughter’s wedding reception. Guests were able to take phone pics! And Mrs Santa had some time to come too!! They did a great job!
Santa Mark was amazing! His personality wasn't the only thing that was sparkling, he had that real life Santa twinkle in his eye. Not only did he spend time with each individual child but he also took the time to interact with all the parents that were present. He showed up right on time and spent every minute after that being the life of the party. His Santa outfit was the best I've seen by far. I would 100% recommend him for any holiday event.
Santa is definitely the best Santa. Not only does he bring smiles to my kid and our neighborhood kids but he graciously volunteers his time as our neighborhood Santa to put smiles on our kids faces!! Now that is what Christmas is about!
Santa mark has done an amazing job volunteering his time for our neighborhood. He is out at all times taking pictures and talking with children.
This guy is the real thing did a great Job. My Grand Daughter enjoyed his present and the little delighted to see Santa
Very authentic looking Santa and great with the kids too! He volunteers his time each year to greet all the kids in our neighborhood!
Excellent Santa! He lives in our neighborhood and we love seeing him every December. You’ll have to make sure you are actually in San Antonio & not the North Pole.
Mr. Mark truly wears his heart on his Santa sleeve! He is genuine and caring and his costume is straight out of the North Pole.
I am so blessed to have such a humble person to pose as Santa for my son’s first Christmas photo!
Santa Mark is amazing! He is a better Santa than some you even see in TV! My kids love visiting him and he truly loves seeing them!
Santa mark is awesome! Super duper awesome along side Mrs. Claus... I got the greatest pictures and my kids are so happy and he was able to let me know what's on my children's wish list without raising an inch of Suspicion...such a happy and jolly 'ol Santa!!
Santa Mark is wonderful! He's been able to help keep my older sons Christmas spirit alive these past 2 years and couldn't be more grateful! He's also wonderful around pets, can't get better than that!
Santa is so kind, good with kiddos of all ages!! Thank you for bringing Christmas spirit to our neighborhood!
Genourously serving the neighborhood kids and adults. Can NOT hire any better Santa gauranteed!! Ask if Mrs Claus available too!
Santa Mark is the best!!. Thank you for your time, dedication and patience with the kids (and adults). Taking pictures is great, and Santa and Mrs Claus are awesome. The decorations are from a Christmas realistic book and they even give candy to the kids.
Santa Mark is patient and great with the kids. All of my kids love him.
Santa Mark is Santa! He is genuine, kind and patient. Why waste your time with an imposter? Hire the best, hire Santa Mark!!!!
Santa Mark is the best out there! He truly looks as you would imagine Santa to look. He is very engaging with the children and his decor is beautiful. Plus, Mrs. Claus is with him for an extra bonus. My daughter was over the moon to see him!
This was our son's first time meeting Santa Claus and Santa Mark was great. Thank you for doing this for our neighborhood! Everybody had a great time.
Mark is an awesome Santa! He and Mrs Clause are wonderful with children, parents, and senior citizens! They are warm, engaging, and bring the magic of the season alive. Even the grinchiest of hearts will melt in the presence of these two. So grateful to have met them. PURE AWESOME!
Santa Mark is the best! He’s been entertaining our neighborhood kiddos for the last couple of years. He always has a smile on his face and a big hug. He even went outside last week when it was snowing so that the kids could have their pictures taken with Santa in the snow.
Santa Mark lives in our neighborhood spends hours on the weekend posing for pictures and listening to the kids tell him what they want. His costume is wonderful amd the real beard is amazing. Mrs. Claus is fabulous.
Best Santa Ever!
Santa Mark lives in my neighborhood, and puts on a wonderful Santa display for our community. His Santa suit is great and looks of good quality and his beard is real! He’s a great Santa the kids (and adults) love him!
Mark is great. Very kind, humble and professional.
Santa and Mrs. Claus live in our neighborhood. Being new to the community, I had no idea we were so lucky to have these wonderful people right in our front door (literally)! We don’t have children but we visited Santa anyway and had our picture made. He’s wonderful!
Mark loves the idea of being Santa, to lift spirits and bring happiness to anyone - young and older! - with a true twinkle in his eye. You will never be sorry you booked him, for anything from personal appearances, to commercials, etc. His giving personality & heart of caring was made to be Santa, year-'round!
Response from Santa Mark:
Thank you David.
Santa Mark lives in our neighborhood. This is the second year we’ve gone to see him. His costume is beautiful with amazing details. His beard is the best I’ve seen, just like I’d picture a Santa to look. And his facial expressions are straight out of a Christmas book, fantastic! Of course he is also wonderful with the kids.
Response from Santa Mark:
Thank you Alicia. So happy to provide my Santa services to the neighborhood.
Santa Mark was wonderful! He was so engaging and everything you'd want a Santa to be. His costume was beautiful, and the twinkle in his eye stole the show. Santa Mark was prompt, knowledgable and so fun to be around. I would highly recommend Santa Mark for all of your Santa needs.
Santa Mark was incredible. He MADE our Christmas party. If you want to have Santa at your party or event, there is no one better. Santa Mark was the best!

What to Expect
I impersonate Santa Claus. I own my own suit, and I am a real bearded Santa Claus. I will pose for pictures, serve in parades, act in commercials, make house visits, read "Twas the Night Before Christmas" for kids and families. I will deliver presents to kids for their parents. I am available for "Christmas in July" (or any other month) events, and cruise events that require a Santa Claus. I have a Mrs. Claus that is available as well.
Member of the International Brotherhood of Real Bearded Santa's (IBRBS) in which a security background check has been conducted.
This is my second year as Santa Claus (2017). I started doing this out of pure joy and the desire to bring smiles to my community. I set up my Christmas display in my front yard and decided to put on a Santa suit. I stood in my front yard and started waving at everyone that came by. It's a large neighborhood and only one way in and out. I live at the entrance, so everyone coming in had to see me waving. Soon people started stopping by and taking pictures. They started bringing their kids and even bringing out the kid in themselves. It was such a good time, I am continuing to play the role. This is where the "unverified reviews" are coming from. My neighbors that come out to visit with Santa are logging on and giving their reviews. Since they did not hire me through gigsalad, they show up as unverified. These are people that know me all year round. Not just as Santa!
My background is in many areas of interest, I am a Navy Vet of 9 years, working as a Nuclear trained Machinist Mate, honorably discharged in 1992. I served in Operation Desert Storm in 1991, receiving the "Kuwait Liberation" (Kuwait) medal and the "Southwest Asia service" ribbon. Graduate from the University of Michigan with a Bachelors degree in business management, and currently work from my home in San Antonio for a company based in down town San Antonio. I serve as a Board of Director for two corporations, one for profit and one a nonprofit.
I am also an ordained minister with Calvary Ministry International out of Fort Wayne Indiana.
I get a lot of joy and excitement in my role as Santa Claus. I am available for most any venue and I look forward to hearing from you.
