Florida Kris Kringle doesn’t portray Santa Claus. He is Santa Claus. You see, being Santa isn’t just about wearing a costume. It’s so much more than that. To be Santa, the magic and wonder, and the desire to spread cheer and goodwill must begin in the heart.
From the moment he put on the Santa suit, he knew it was meant to be. Some might say the suit fit like a glove. With a twinkle in his eyes, and a deep, resonating voice, he delights in interacting with young children to older adults. You won’t get any more real than this.
Florida Kris Kringle is Florida’s premier Santa Claus. He is a former law enforcement officer who retired as one of the most honored and decorated police officers in the State of Florida.
He’s no stranger to positive interaction with children, and his work with children includes having served as a D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) Instructor in Palm Beach County schools, Police Explorer Program leader, and having served on the Board of Directors for Palm Beach County Special Olympics. In addition, he is a father himself.
