Santa Pat Lewis is Oregon's number one, premier, award winning, real bearded, professional Santa Claus. You will recognize him by his smile, his chuckle, his big hugs and his genuine compassion for people of of all ages.
Mrs. Claus often joins Santa. Together they are the most authentic and believable Claus couple you’ll ever see. They will restore your faith in Christmas magic as they bring those North Pole legends to life.
These two are experienced, licensed, insured and background checked. They work between Salem, Portland and Vancouver and are available for private parties, corporate events, community events, conventions, broadcasting, modeling, commercials, photography and more.
Great communication, easy to work with and very professional. He was a hit for the kids and adults in our group. I would highly recommend Santa Pat!
Santa a good job. He was very interactive with the children.
We booked Santa Pat for our Holiday Luncheon in Vancouver, Washington and Santa Pat was a great addition. From his outfit, to his whole demeanor, Santa Pat truly made the day more jolly. We're excited to book him again for our next event!
Santa Pat and Mrs. Claus are above and beyond what I hoped they would be! They were very communicative, organized and prepared up to the event and showed up early and ready to go. I work at a retirement community and I looked through a Lot of Santa's. I hired Pat because when we were on the phone, he asked if he would be going into our Memory Care community, which I assumed he was asking because he wanted to make sure that he wouldn't have to, but instead he was asking because he Wanted to! He and Mrs. Claus are the most patient, empathetic and down to earth people and brought So much joy to our Memory Care neighborhood first before providing photos and joy at the rest of our event. It's obvious that they are very experienced at what they do and they're a great team. I would absolutely recommend hiring Mrs. Claus as well. She helps break the ice and encourage shy folks and kiddos to come meet Santa as well as being just the sweetest woman you could ever meet. I can't wait to have Pat and Helen back next year!

Santa Pat Lewis expects his hosts to provide for proper staging, props, photography, lighting and sound. He expects a secure, clean changing area, fresh water and a reserved parking place close to his entrance. He expects his host to provide a greeter to give Santa directions and help with any props.
When Santa chairs are provided, they should be firm with low or no arms and should NOT be overstuffed. Santa chairs should be strong enough to support two full grown men, about 600 pound capacity (it happens, really). The seat of the Santa chair should be about 18" from the ground. If seats are higher than 18", a foot rest should be provided equivalent to the height difference. If the seats are lower than 18", a booster seat will be needed to make up the height difference. For a minimal fee, Santa can bring his own ornate Santa chair.
