Arts, Music, Holidaze! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Sponsored this week by the Mermaid’s Market – 1st and 3rd Saturdays @ Plaza Camarón (Fall-Spring)

The marathon has begun! We’re talking about the “Lupe-Reyes” marathon of festivities in Mexico – stretching from Día de la Virgen de Guadalupe (Dec. 12th) through Día de Reyes (Kings Day – Jan. 6th). Plus, with the traditional holiday posadas right in the middle…starting Dec. 16th through Christmas Eve….holiday season is on in Rocky Point! If your plans include a beachside spot to await Santa, keep in mind the traditional family evening in Mexico is Dec. 24th and so most places (including many restaurants, etc.) may be closing up shop early.  Let’s get down to it and run down the weekend!
