Holiday Season Festivities in The Palm Beaches

Tree-mendous Ways to See Santa This Holiday Season

It stands 10 stories high, holds 39,500 ornaments and twinkles with 15,000 LED lights. What is this tree-mendous structure? We're talking about the world-famous 100-Foot Christmas Tree in Delray Beach, a must-see holiday attraction here in The Palm Beaches.

100-Foot Christmas Tree, Delray Beach

Towering over Old School Square Park, this spectacular sight comes to life (or should we say light?) on Nov. 29, when Santa arrives via helicopter and thousands of people gather 'round one of the 10 Best Christmas Trees in America. 2018 marks the 25th anniversary of the tree, and right after its lighting at 7:15 p.m., Santa will start posing for pictures.

If you can't make the Delray Beach event, there's no need to fret. With 39 cities and towns in The Palm Beaches, Santa makes plenty of appearances throughout the holiday season. Here's a list of other opportunities to see Jolly Old St. Nick:

Sandi Land, West Palm Beach

Come see "Sandi" Claus, the world's only 35-foot tree created from 600 tons of sand, in West Palm Beach. The City of West Palm Beach rings in the holiday season with the lighting of Sandi as part of a dazzling light show set to holiday music along the West Palm Beach waterfront. This light show repeats nightly, kicking off Nov. 29 and going through Dec. 31.
