WHO: West Palm Beach Mayor Keith A. James
WHAT: Mayor Keith A. James and City staff will announce a major element of this year’s Holiday in Paradise presented by FPL. This is a can’t-miss announcement related to one of the most well-known and notable local holiday celebrations, featuring Sandi Tree.

- Holiday in Paradise is coming soon to the West Palm Beach waterfront featuring Sandi Tree, the world’s only 35-foot, 700-ton holiday sand tree, as the main star.
- Sandi’s 11th annual return is expected to be the brightest yet, featuring an interactive, visually dynamic new and fun element.
- Sandi’s synchronized music and light shows will run nightly on the quarter hour from 6 – 10 p.m. through December (except on days with scheduled special events) and will be extended on New Year’s Eve until midnight.
Media and the public should also save the date for the Clematis by Night Holiday Tree Lighting on Thursday, December 1 from 6 – 9 p.m. | Great Lawn | FREE
