The long-awaited arrival of the CMV Astoria has come! Puerto Peñasco’s jaunt into cruise opportunities is a welcome jolt for the New Year. Even if you’re not aboard the first 11-day cruise to depart from Puerto Peñasco on Jan 9th – or missed out on tickets for the luncheon the day before – you can still witness this important chapter in the city’s life as an inaugural ceremony will be held on the Malecón in the Old Port on Thursday 11:50 a.m. – with the Astoria anchored in the Sea of Cortez serving as backdrop. Ahoy!
Still feeling the holiday spirit? TOY DRIVE for the annual Kings Day Toy Drive sponsored by the Rocky Point Rally and local motorcycle clubs Toy drop off (unwrapped preferably) through Jan. 10th @ Playa Bonita / Max Jewelry
