Let’s Jam! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Sponsored this week by RCPM’s January Jam 2017!

Gas ‘er up! Despite gas shortages earlier in the week, due to blockage of plants supplying the city, not to mention the hike in gas prices that welcomed us in 2017, this hasn’t slowed Rocky Point down at all and we’re ready for a busy year!  Area gas stations are opening up again and regular service is expected to resume at all stations shortly. Travel tip: Gas remains less expensive on the US side of the border, so be sure to fill up before the trek down.  So, fill ‘er up and let’s run down this busy Martin Luther King, Jr. day weekend in town!
