#RPSB2K16 Wk2! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

boo-barThis Spring Break Rundown sponsored by our friends at BooBar

If you happen to be traveling along AZ 85 today, just before the last turn as the road veers south to Rocky Point, a strange convergence of goings and comings can be observed. The bleery-eyed resort-wristband.wearing crowd heading North sit together with sunburns and colorful headbands blaring “Puerto Peñasco”, while the anxious flip-flop donning, ready to fill the cooler crew makes their way South. Yes, that moment when you can’t tell where one Spring Break ends and the other begins…. So let’s run down the weekend!

FRIDAYS! 12 p.m. – 1 p.m. In town? Tune into 106.1 FM to hear Sami on air with host Felix Rincón to chat about what’s coming up in Rocky Point as they count down the top 5 stories and hits! Online: http://www.player.audiorama.mx/stream/penasco/   [Click on 40 Principales]

DONATE! Red Cross Annual Collection runs March 7th – May 7th. Collection spots in Sonoyta on southern side of town, and in Puerto Peñasco along Blvd. Juárez and Blvd. Fremont
