What people have to say about Santa Ames…

Annual EventBrenda C - 11/20/17
We had the same Santa for many years at our annual event, so there were big shoes to fill. I am so glad we found Santaames to fill that void! He did a wonderful job with the children (pleasant, funny, memorable), and I had many comments after the event about what a great Santa we had. Santaames responds quickly to messages and was prompt to arrive on the night of the event. We will definitely be looking to book again next year!
