Celebrating the Holidays Florida Style

Nothing says Christmas in Florida quite like Sandi, a 600-ton sand tree standing 35 feet tall in beautiful downtown West Palm Beach. Sandi has been a city tradition for the last six years. (Although, I am embarrassed to say I have never seen it in person - until now that is!) This year's official lighting and opening night celebration takes place tomorrow, November 30, beginning at 6:00 pm. It will include fun activities for the entire family including glow-in-the-dark mini-golf and several smaller sand sculptures on display. 

I was in downtown the other night and got a glimpse of Sandi and some of the works of art before the sun set, but more sculptures will be revealed tomorrow night.  

This year's theme? Animal rescue and adoption! At least two sculptures are expected to make their debut tomorrow evening honoring specific local animal rescue groups. I am definitely planning on going back in the month of December to see the light show for myself! This post is just a sneak peek of this year's sand art on Clematis Street. 


Season's Greetings, everyone!
