Deck the Halls! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

las palomas sponsor bannerSponsored this week by Las Palomas Beach & Golf Resort

The countdown is on…less than 3 weeks till Christmas followed right after by the New Year!  From three or four course meals and champagne toasts, to live music all night long and weekend resort stays, check with your favorite restaurant or cantina for ideas on how to ring in 2017!   Yet, before that, the holiday season can be felt across the city with the traditional holiday tree going up at Plaza la Madre, evening pilgrimages through town leading up to Dec. 12th – Día de la Virgen de Guadalupe – and of course holiday parties “posadas” along with Christmas trees and decorations popping up under a palapa or two. Let’s run down the weekend!
