Art – Music – Culture! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

This weekend rundown presented by the Club Rotario Mar de Peñasco, AC

For the past 45 years, music and art from across the globe have convened in the majestic colonial city of Guanajuato in central Mexico for the International Cervantino Festival. Here in Puerto Peñasco, we have had the opportunity to be an extension for this fiesta of música, cultura, and arte off and on over the past 9 years – this weekend will be the 6th time the city is host to a flurry of activities surrounding what is basically one of the most important cultural events in the country. Be sure to take in the evening and late concerts on the malecón!  Let’s run down the weekend – which also offers music, mud, and mermaids (well, the mermaids market)!
