jazzart-oct-11-12-13-403x620 All that jazz! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!Music continues this weekend in Rocky Point at the 5th Annual Jazz & Art Festival. Plus, look to the sea for catamarans darting about for the Piñata Regatta, and you may also catch runners taking on obstacle courses at the InSANDity course set up in front of Playa Bonita. Fall activities are here and it’s time for the Weekend Rundown!

Fall in Puerto Peñasco means Back to the Beach for many longer-time residents; warm sunny days with no humidity are welcome reminders of why we enjoy October so much!

This weekend:

Proceeds from this yearly fun-fundraiser go to help the many programs that receive support from the Las Conchas Community Relations Committee.   6 p.m. Caribbean Parrot (Ave. Sinaloa) Adults $20 US / Children $10 US  Buffet, Silent Auction, and Dancing!
