All About the Grand Rapids Virtual Santa Visits

“Knowing that many holiday traditions will likely look different this year, the GRPM is offering a safe way for families to visit with Santa,” said Gina Schulz, VP of Development for the GRPM.

“The entire family will have fun with either a call from Santa directly or a customized message to play anytime you’d like. Each purchase also supports the Museum’s ongoing exhibits and programs.”

New this year, enjoy a family-fun experience with the Grand Rapids Santa virtually for 2020!

Santa will visit families virtually through a LIVE Zoom chat or downloadable video message to the kids or entire family, starting September 27.

Santa will be making Zoom calls to families at a pre-scheduled time, or families have the option to receive a downloadable customized video message directly from Santa.

A Little About Santa Michael

When you book the GRPM Santa visit, you’re working with the Mitten State Santa, Santa Michael.

Santa Michael is a real-bearded, singer, storytelling Santa Claus who has worked with children for over 30 years.

Santa Michael is a retired middle school teacher from Reed City Area Public Schools with over 30 years of experience in the field of education. He knows children and understands the importance of dreams in every child’s life.

As Santa, he has brought smiles and laughter to children and adults of all ages.

Santa spends time speaking with each child, listening to their dreams and wishes. Santa Michael’s smile, twinkle in his eyes, and full belly laughter brings the mystique of Santa Claus alive in every visit and events that he attends.
