A Black Tie Affair! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Nuevo Logo 1Weekend rundown sponsored by FMI Rentals

The 15th Annual Rocky Point Rally has come and gone, and it was definitely one to remember! We’re already excited thinking about next year (dates for the 16th Annual are Nov. 10 – 13, 2016 by the way)!   In the meantime, as we work our way through November, it’s time to cuddle up in Rocky Point, throw on a sweater or a ball gown, and take a stroll on the beach with a hot cup of a preferred Fall beverage. There’s still plenty to do in Puerto Peñasco including gala balls, concerts, and more, so with the rumble of bikes roaring through our memory…at least till next year…, let’s go ahead and run down the weekend!
