Santa ‘Bill’ has been portraying the “Big Guy” for nearly 14 years now. His first appearance was at a department store in upstate New York. Then the family relocated to Florida. Through our association with The High Springs Community Theater (and the fact that his beard was now mostly grey with some white) he landed the job of Santa at the annual High Springs Tree Lighting Festival. Santa had so much fun that he purchased his own suit so he could do it again. After several years of being there solo, Santa convinced Mrs. Claus to join him. Eventually we were in the High Springs parade as well as the tree lighting ceremony.
Since those humble beginnings we have opened our property to the public for a tour of our Forest of Lights in November and then appear at many locations during the month of December. We provide Santa services for home parties, church parties, festivals, parades, businesses and schools.
Santa Bill is a member of The Palm Tree Santas and IBRBS (International Brotherhood of Real Bearded Santas). We have attended several schools for Santa and both Santa and Mrs. Claus have their Master’s Degrees in Santaclausology. Santa has a current background check and both are covered with liability insurance..
