Art by the Sea! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

RCPM-in-jjs-cantina-15-630x420 Art by the Sea! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!This week’s rundown sponsored by RCPM en Vivo en México – coming up Oct. 16th & 17th!

Ahh! Can you feel that?  Crisp, cool mornings and sunny afternoons! Fall has come to Rocky Point, granted our Fall involves temps in the 80s and lots of shrimp rather than a myriad of autumn colors, but Fall none the less. There’s lots going on so let’s get started!


  • Overpass construction continues just north of town. Remain alert to short detours.
  • Remain alert at first intersection when entering town (Blvd Juarez / Blvd Ocaña / Blvd Josefa) as stoplight is often flashing (road to Josefa to fully open)
