It should be right where he is visiting. If he parks down the street or around the corner and has to walk all the way to your home or office, he may be winded and exhausted when he gets there. Remember, he’s a Senior Citizen wearing a heavy velvet suit that gets very hot. He always budgets about five minutes for parking. Any more time than that is part of your allotted time. If the visit is at your home, leave an opening at the end of your driveway. Put a temporary barrier in the space. Have some fun and put a sign out “Reserved for Santa!” or back one car down the driveway with a space in front. When Santa calls that he is there, whoever greets him outside can pull the car up in the driveway and Santa can park right behind. If your event is at a company facility, office building or hotel, try to make arrangements for Santa to park in a valet or loading area. Again, you can mark the area with a fun sign. This makes it easier for him to be fresh and ready to bring joy to your guests.
