Sand tree lighting Thursday on Clematis Street

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - The second annual Sandi tree lighting will take place Thursday night on Clematis Street in West Palm Beach.

The sand tree is 35 feet tall and built using 600 tons of sand!

Light and sound crews tested the equipment early Thursday morning to make sure everything was ready tonight.

The sand tree made The "Huffington Post's" list of 10 towns that go big for Christmas.

The lighting will take place at 6 p.m.
