¡Hola 2017! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Sponsored by Playa Bonita Resort – proud sponsor of Kings Day Toy Run!

Happy New Year! ¡Feliz Año Nuevo! We’re back!  The holiday season is not quite over in Rocky Point as January 6th heralds the arrival of “Reyes Magos”, bearing mostly toys for kiddos around town. Traditional Kings’ Day celebrations with friends and family include sharing a “rosca” cake (while trying to avoid the plastic doll…which would then deem you host of a tamale party come February).  Gas prices are up, much to the chagrin of the entire nation, which has led to peaceful protests along streets and/or in front of gas stations and some public offices, so just to be watchful and patient.  We’ve got a busy year ahead of us, so let’s get started and run down the weekend!
