Santa Ed, a real bearded Santa, has been a professional Santa Claus for 19 years. Ed is a charter member of the International Order of Real Bearded Santas, the Fraternal Order of Real Bearded Santas and has a degree from the University of Santa Claus.
Ed is an actor who has played the role of Santa at the Cabrillo Playhouse in San Clemente. He delighted children and adults alike for 7 seasons of the Playhouse's annual Christmas production.
Santa Ed has been arriving on a Fire Engine for 14 years, on the first Saturday after Thanksgiving, as the headliner for San Clemente’s “Puttin on the Glitz” ushering in the Holiday Season. After getting off the Fire Engine, there is an opportunity for pictures with Santa in the Community Center.
He has delivered holiday cheer to corporate gatherings, corporate employee parties, and new product introductions. Santa Ed has also been the star attraction at over 360 family gatherings. He continues to perform repeat engagements for both corporate and family gatherings.
Santa is currently busy making his list and checking it twice; to schedule your special event or to request a visit from Santa this year complete the "Book Santa" form or call Santa’s hot line 949-689-8592. Ed looks forward to having an opportunity to make your holiday gathering more memorable than ever.
