Holiday lights will continue to spark in the upcoming days as Fremont, Newark and Union City host festive Santa visits and tree lightings.
Sponsored by the Washington Hospital Healthcare Foundation, the events are known as the annual Trees of Angels.

It will continue Saturday with a holiday breakfast, followed by tree lightings in Newark and Union City on Monday and Wednesday, respectively.
