Best Beach Holidays In Usa

It's beginning to look a lot like the holidays in downtown West Palm Beach.

No, there's no snow falling and no, there's no sleigh pulled by eight tiny reindeer making high-speed practice runs over our area.

What makes it a "Holiday in Paradise" is our amazingly beautiful and unique 35-foot, 700-ton holiday sand sculpture known as Sandi Tree!

Hitting double digits, this is Sandi's 10th anniversary, and the celebration will be bigger than ever this year.

Not just a bigger celebration either: From her first run in 2012, she has increased in awesomeness from 400 tons to a full-figured 700.

Complete with thousands of lights synchronized to music and the newly redesigned Centennial Fountain, Sandi is ready.

This special edition of Clematis by Night will feature country music star Brooke Eden. With an impressive catalog of songs including the hits "Got No Choice," "Sunroof," "No Shade," and more, this West Palm Beach native will get the night hopping and happy.

Country music star Brooke Eden will help kick off the official lighting of Sandi during the Clematis by Night Holiday Tree Lighting on Thursday.
