The Holiday Season in West Palm Beach features many events where locals and visitors can enjoy one of the best Holidays ever. As they say, this is the most beautiful time of the year. There will be no shortage of things to do now that we have flipped the switch on for the holiday season since December 3. This is a summary of all the events for the Holiday Season in West Palm Beach.
Most cities have their own holiday traditions. We have Sandi Land during the Holiday Season in West Palm Beach. This is truly a Holiday in Paradise event featuring a 600-ton Sand Tree. It comes to life in synchronizing holiday sounds and lights shows.
Throughout the month of December, residents and visitors can visit Sandi Land on the West Palm Beach Waterfront and enjoy a spectacular Holiday In Paradise with tons of free entertainment and family-friendly festivities. The star of the festivities is “Sandi,” a holiday tree standing 35 feet tall.
The following events and activities will take place during the stunning West Palm Beach Sandi Land: Holiday in Paradise celebration.

This year, spectators can also become a part of the show with dazzling LED snowflakes that sync with Sandi. The snowflakes allow fans to interact with Sandi through blinking lights and can be used all season long during return visits to Sandi Land, or to add some twinkle to their own tree at home. Each snowflake is $10 and will be available for purchase at West Palm Beach Visitor Information Center and at the Waterfront Activity Station by the docks.

Kids and adults will both enjoy creating their own life-size tropical snowman with fun mix-and-match pieces. Guests can take a seasonal selfie and share their tropical snowman with friends up north.
