Clematis by Night Holiday Tree Lighting
Thursday, December 5
Festivities start at 6 p.m.
Save the date for the City of West Palm Beach’s annual holiday tree lighting! After nearly a month-long preparation, “Sandi,” the world’s only 700-ton sand tree will be ready to make her debut. The 35-foot star of the City’s annual Holiday in Paradise campaign will bring merriment and cheer through December 31, including nightly light shows and a cast of supporting characters. Santa will be in attendance to visit with guests and take photos. In addition to the main band, guests can also enjoy strolling a capella singers throughout the event singing holiday songs. Surf’s up for Sandi, as with every year, Sandi’s story will unfold a little bit more this season.
The best way to spread holiday cheer is singing loudly for all to hear! The Bay Kings will sing plenty of holiday music and Top 40 hits for the crowd as they watch Sandi light up for the first time this season. The Bay Kings are sure to bring delight to the audience with their energetic and fun performance.
DAILY EVENTS/THINGS TO DO (starting evening of 12/5 – 12/31):
Returning activities this year include “Glow FORE it Mini Golf,” “SnowieVille,” and Sandi’s dressing room. Get ready to “Hang Ten” with surf related selfie spots throughout the Great Lawn; gingerbread and snowman cutouts for adults and children of all ages to pose with; and an oversize ornament, where multiple guests can sit inside and snap a shot. Drop a letter in the mail to Sandi, everyone’s favorite seasonal sand tree. Visit the new mailbox by the West Palm Beach Visitors Center and drop her a line – then wait by your own mailbox at home, where she just might send you some salty and sassy holiday cheer!
