About this pro

ProfessionalSantaClaus is more than ho, ho, ho.

There was a time when all you needed for Santa to come to your special Christmas party was a fake beard, a cheap red suit, a pillow for a belly, and someone like Uncle Jim to don it all. Sure, it wouldn't fool any of the adults or older children or the younger ones for that matter, but at least, you got Santa to show up. Everybody was satisfied, right? Maybe they were, or not. Why chance it, when you could have the professional Santa Claus?

Dale "Santa Claus" Kilpatrick now has over thirty-five years of experience, specializing in the large or small:

* worldwide
* parades
* private parties
* corporate events
* print/video advertising
* professional modeling
* promotional events
* reindeer available
* special request

Services are year round. I also offer proof: "Santa came while you slept!" and do birthdays and school motivational speaking.

Worldwide, I have been known as Santa. I've purposely developed a style and demeanor consistent with Nicholas of Myra, better known as St. Nick, patron saint of children. Mother Nature has very generously bestowed me with my looks (no, that's not a pillow, and yes, that is a real beard) and stature. At over three hundred pounds and more than six feet tall, I can help make anyone feel like a small child again.

I have had the honor of being Santa and bouncing children on my knee, from a few days old, to "kids of over ninety-two". I've played a variety of venues from small intimate gatherings to functions with thousands, such as corporate events, parades, television and radio.

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.

As the professional Santa Claus, one of the most enjoyable experiences I have is when a child reaches the age that they question the existence or reality of the "true" Santa Claus. I explain that they, too, can be Santa. All they need is to give a gift to another person, not telling that special someone the present is from them. Fill out the gift tag "from, Santa" instead of their own name. That makes them one of Santa's helpers without needing a large white beard, big belly, or red furry Santa suit. After all, being Santa is the desire to give, more than to receive.

That, my child, is what I am all about.

    Dale is the BEST! He has visited our home for 12 years at Christmas and he is the REAL SANTA! He is great with kids of all ages. I highly recommend him. My children have grown up with him and we all know there is no other Santa. We look forward to his visit each year. A tradition we hope will last for generations just like our fond memories.
