This week’s Rundown sponsored by Rocky Point Best – Grand office Opening on Sept. 3rd!
The streets of Puerto Peñasco are adorned in the traditional red, white, & green in preparation for Independence Day. Summer humidity is starting to loosen its grip, and many “old timers” in Rocky Point will tell you the weather starts to really change right around the time of EL GRITO (the Independence Day festivities of Sept. 15th-16th). It’s Labor Day Weekend in the U.S., so lots going on around town again this weekend – plus there are business openings and sales to get to! Let’s run down the weekend!
*Travel note: When driving from Sonoyta continue to watch for rough patches between KM 15 – KM 30 (just South of Sonoyta). Pot holes have been filled though some spots can be bumpy. When driving along Coastal Highway, remain alert to sand accumulated on highway and in general DRIVE SAFELY – NO NEED TO SPEED – YOU’LL GET HERE!
