Donkeys are perfect for Christmas events and can really capture part of the essence of the Nativity as many people accept that Mary travelled to Bethlehem, where Jesus was born, upon a donkey.
Having donkeys present at your Christmas event, amidst all the inevitable commercial side of the seasonal festivities, gives children and adults alike a physical link to the real reason for the celebrations.
Whatever the nature of your Christmas event, children adore getting close to these gentle animals to touch and stroke them, and the donkeys love the attention they receive.
If you are putting on a Nativity production, we can supply donkeys for both Mary and Joseph to ride, providing a wonderful experience for both participants and spectators.
Planning a procession down the town street, leading to the switch on of the Christmas lights? Let Mike's Donkeys lead the way tacked up with sleigh bells and Christmas hats.
If you are having a Santa's Grotto for the children the donkeys can accompany him on his arrival (even pulling his 'sleigh'). They are a great attraction to keep the children in the queue occupied while they are waiting their turn to see Santa.
