Celebrate the Holiday Season in West Palm Beach, as we call it: “Holiday in Paradise,” where “Sandi,” the world’s only 700-ton sand tree, is the main attraction in West Palm Beach during Christmas and holiday season. A must-do if you are in South Florida.
Our beloved holiday tradition includes additional sand sculptures in Sandi Land. Plus, more than a dozen of West Palm Beach’s favorite—and free—weekly and monthly events to celebrate along Sandi, the star of the Holiday in Paradise event.
Activities for the Holiday Season in West Palm Beach
Sandi’s nightly music and light shows on Clematis Street’s Waterfront Park is the star of the holiday season in West Palm Beach.
As the world’s only 35-foot surfin’ sand tree made up of 700-tons of sand, Sandi is at the center of many free events taking place on the Waterfront Commons in Downtown on New Year’s Eve that include:
Glow FORE It Mini Golf: Monday-Friday: 6-10 PM, Saturday-Sunday: Noon-10 PM.
