It's the second year we've gotten a taste of the tropics, here in the Quad Cities.
All at the Quad City Botanical Center's tropical sandbox.
Open since December, organizers said the 2 tons of sand in their sun garden has been a hit with kids.
More than 100 people visited just today.
"Gosh the kids love to come in and play it's warm in here, they can spend a couple of hours," said Kari Campbell of the Quad City Botanical Center.
The tropical sandbox is open until the end of February.
