On Saturday, the City of Oakley hosted its annual Christmas Tree lighting where hundreds of residents were on hand despite the threat of rain. The event featured performances by local choirs, crafts, and of course pictures with Santa. Assemblyman elect Jim Frazier was on hand along with council members Pat Anderson and Randy Pope who joined Mayor Kevin Romick with the countdown.
Here is a short minute video from the ceremony where Mayor Romick counts down to the lighting.
