¡Viva la Revolución! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown

360-directoryThis week’s rundown sponsored by our own RockyPoint360 Directory! Are you in it, yet?

There is a gentle quiet that has settled over the city, or perhaps it’s the ringing in our ears after the more than 8K bikes that rumbled through town last weekend for the Rocky Point Rally!  Following the tremendous SUPER moon this week, the weather appears to have finally decided summer is over as many folk can be seen – for the first time since about February – wearing light jackets.  Mexican Revolution Day is this weekend (Nov 20th) with a full-fledged parade to come down Blvd. Juarez on Monday (the 21st…yes, a bank holiday).  Thanksgiving is also just around the corner, and we’re ready to run down the weekend!
