Thousands of Valley families celebrate every year with a sweet tradition. (KFSN)

Employees at Panderia Vista Hermosa in Downtown Fresno have been busy churning out hundreds of sweet treats called Rosca de Reyes.

January 6th is known as el Dia de Reyes, or Day of the Kings, which marks the last day of the Christmas season.

Inside the kitchen at Panderia Vista Hermosa, extra employees have been brought in to hand make the treat in a variety of sizes. January 6th is the busiest day of the year for the shop.

Employees make the bread by hand. Each oval sweet bread is topped with dry fruit and decorations, some that come from Mexico. Inside every bread are three figurines to celebrate the epiphany. Whoever gets that figurine is expected to make a meal or organize a party.

Employees say they expect to sell hundreds of these cakes. It's a tradition marking the end of the holiday season, in a fun and festive way.
