Habemos Circus Mexicus. Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

This weekend’s rundown sponsored by Circus Mexicus

In the words of Roger Clyne as he opened the main stage of CM about three years ago, “we are surrounded by high spirits, positive vibrations, and good medicine” for the full-on music fest that is Circus Mexicus spreading across the sands and skies of Rocky Point over the next four days. Plus, if you’re adding to the list of things to do there’s the All-Star Baseball Game and HomeRun Derby at the Francisco León García Stadium with our very own Tiburones hometeam, additional tunes across town, and don’t forget the rubber duckies out at sea on Sunday!  Pace yourselves, and let’s run down the weekend! ¡Bienvenidos, amigos!
