Q: How far ahead should I book an event?
A: Most Saturdays and Sundays are booked a several months in advance. (I start booking Santa gigs with my past customers in June and July) so If possible, you might want to check with Santa before you establish a party date, call Santa Arizona for availability, this way he can work with you to find a mutually convenient time on your calendar.
Q: Will Santa Arizona put a date on hold for me while I check with my spouse?
A: Santa offers a 3 hour hold for most events. After the 3 hr hold expires, someone else may claim the date if Santa Arizona has not heard from you. In most cases, Santa will attempt to call you first prior to booking the other client, but that may not always be possible.
Q: Does Santa Arizona have references?
A: Yes. Each of the testimonials can be viewed on request and Santa Arizona has many available. In fact, to date, we have never had an unsatisfied customer, but don’t let any on my Elf’s hear that, they like to pull pranks.
Q: Does Santa Arizona perform at 1st Birthday parties?
A: Yes. The birthday baby’s cousins and friends ages 3 and up have a blast!
Q: What forms of payment does Santa Arizona accept?
A: Personal checks and cash are preferred.
Q: Is Santa insured?
A: Yes. Santa Arizona and BoBo the Magic Clown carries General Liability Insurance and can provide documentation upon request.
Q: Does Santa have employees or other performers who he sends in his place?
A: Yes and No. If you book Santa Arizona then you get Santa Arizona. If he is booked already, he may refer you to another performer in your area, or offer a substitute Santa his company has on contract.
Q: Is it customary to tip?
A: Santa is happy with what he makes without tips. However if you found Santa Arizona’s services to be more than you expected, he’ll be happy to accept praise or a tip of your choosing. To date I have received tips from twenty dollars to one thousand dollars, and a child’s smile is worth far more.
