MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Some call it the Feast of the Epiphany, but in the Latino community, Jan. 6 is Three Kings Day, celebrating the arrival of the kings bringing gifts to baby Jesus. 

It marks the end of the Christmas season. 

We visited a bakery on Milwaukee's south side Thursday, where they were selling the colorful and traditional Three Kings Bread.

"It's a big competition right now, everybody's making it. So we don't make so many, but I mean we make hundreds and we sell hundreds," said Eva Mosso, co-owner of La Flor de Trigo Bakery.

A figure of the baby Jesus is baked into Three Kings Bread. 

If someone finds the baby in their piece of bread, tradition says that person must host a party on Feb. 2.
