About Santa Ron

Professional Santa Claus will pose for photos, lead a sing-a-long, or perform a few magic tricks. Your wish is my desire and the limits of what I will do for you are set by my size, your imagination, and the dictates of decency.

Santa Ron was right on time, very pleasant & good story teller! We all loved his Santa suit & love that it's his beard & not the fake beards. The 12,year old that "no longer believes in Santa" is still trying to figure out how he knew her name

Santa Ron was genuinely kind and patient with all the children. I hope he didn't think I was trying to rush him, but more kids showed than I expected, and he STILL gave them each the time to chit chat with him. The kids (and adults) were very pleased. THANK YOU, Santa Ron for making my son's 5th bday so memorable, If I had more to give, I would have. You were the hit of the party... Merry Christmas!

Response from Santa Ron:

Thank you for the nice review and kind words. I did not feel rushed at all. There really is only one reason to dod what I do and that is to reflect the love that God has given me into the world and spread some joy and happiness during this season! It was my honor to be invited to make his day extra special.

Santa provided a special time for my 5 grandkids ages 3-11. He was happy, jolly, answered all the questions of the one 6 yr. old, had each come up, sit on his knee and talked to them and then presented them with a gift. We also sang this year, took pictures and had just a wonderful time. I was very pleased with his professionalism, his costume and beard and hair, his manner and how he related to all the children. Santa is special to all of us.
