Floridians can only dream a White Christmas admiring their white and sandy beaches. Their Christmas tree is by sand The tree is sculpted by Team Sandtastic, a world-renowned sand sculpting company from Southwest Florida. In 2010, the city began celebrating the holidays South-Florida style with 10 sand sculptures. But in 2011, Mary Pinak of the City’s Parks and Recreation Department, came up with the idea to create one giant sand tree instead. Sculpted from 600 tons of sand, the City of West Palm Beach’s one-of-a-kind tree (nicknamed Sandi) stands at 35 feet and has received national media attention from “The Ellen DeGeneres ShowEllen DeGeneres Show” and the Huffington Post. Now is in her sixth year. “Every year Sandi’s story – and her sassy personality – unwrap a little bit more and this year has surely been one of the most fun” said Pinak. People were mesmerized by Sandi’s mystery “love" which turned out to be a Great Dane mix named Duke. Affectionately referred to as “a Great Dane for a Great Dame” the “Duke of Sandi Land” made his debut as a 50-ton, 15-foot sand sculpture. Sandi, and her Duke of Sandi Land, are on display in West Palm Beach until Dec. 31st. Source: Keep It Local Florida
