SAAAALSAA! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

boobar-728x90-This week’s rundown sponsored by Boo Bar on the malecón  ¡Welcome Back!

School is back in session. Rocky Point is coming off an extremely busy summer tourist season and diving right into a full Fall schedule of events. Be sure to check our Event Calendar so you can plan accordingly. Before August ends, however, it’s time to pull out the dancing shoes and join the Salsa Festival on the malecón this Saturday.  Registration and early music gets started around 7 p.m., with the “record breaking” attempt to take place around 10:30 p.m. There’s time to learn the steps, so bring your salsa duds (ladies in skirts/dresses and guys in slacks por favor).  Let’s get to it and run down the weekend!
