If you heard that the city of Oakley's Breakfast with Santa event is all sold out, don't worry because there are still plenty of festive activities to participate in throughout the holiday season. The series of activities kicks off Dec. 3 with the city's annual Christmas tree lighting. Festivities for the lighting, which takes place in front of City Hall at 3231 Main St. in Oakley, will begin at 4 p.m., with the tree lighting taking place when darkness falls around 6 p.m. 'While waiting for the tree lighting, community members can grab free hot cocoa and cookies, visit Santa and drop off your letter at his mailbox and enjoy the nighttime decorations we set up,' said Alicia O'Leary, a recreation and events coordinator for the city of Oakley.
