Out of Town in 2013!
Here I come, Oakbrook Center, Chicago
November 21, 2013
I still remember, as a 4 or 5 year old, visiting Santa at the local Buster Brown Shoes store. I was already keenly aware that this was probably not THE Santa since he had on a fake beard and moustache, but I knew he had the job that I wanted to have some day. After spending a year in the chair in St. Louis, I am proud to be Santa at Oakbrook Center in Chicago!

My biggest dream when I decided to don the Red Suit, was to be Santa at the Mall. I turned down several opportunities because I wasn't confident that I could answer the questions many children would have for me. After three seasons, including sharing the set with another Santa, 3 different Santa schools, and 2 Santa Conventions, I'm now ready to take my full-time place in the big chair. I know that leaves a void where I worked before and the new families that have heard about me. Please contact Elp Steph at Atlanta's Santas to find the perfect Santa for your holiday event.

(OAKBROOK, Ill.) (WLS) -- You might expect to find Santa and his reindeer at the North Pole, but Friday night they were in suburban Oak Brook. They were on hand for the opening of the new Oakbrook Center Green. The mall has undergone a two-year renovation. On Friday night, families were invited to get in the holiday spirit while enjoying musical performances and a pyrotechnics show. hit!
What to do?
I'm no longer doing visits around Atlanta...
When I first decided I wanted to persue my lifelong dream of portraying Santa, I told my wife my perception of Santa is the guy in red sitting in the big chair in the ornate set at the mall. I want to meet and talk to as many children as possible and where better to do this but in a mall? My year round job allows me the opportunity to take the time I need to be able to serve the community as Santa and for that, I am most appreciative. After spending last year sharing the chair with another Santa at the St. Louis Mills Mall, I am proud to be Santa at Oakbrook Center in suburban Chicago, their first in over two decades! If you are, or know someone, in the greater Chicago area and want a unique Santa experience, I encourage you to stop by. Oakbrook Center still retains the open air experience begun in 1962 and I can be found in the brand new Glass Pavilion. Our new online virtual line system means no waiting in line. Simply register when you arrive at the mall and you will receive a text message when your spot is coming up. Make your way to the Santa set and spend a relaxing time with Santa!
