Back to School! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Sponsored this week by La Cantina @ Sonoran Sky

It’s the final sprint! Some area schools went back into the classroom this past week, with most uniforms and books ready to hit the streets come Monday, Aug. 21st. Please watch for early morning traffic around area schools, plus rushed folks taking their little ones to and fro! In the meantime, enjoy these last few weeks of humidity as we march towards September and Mexican Independence Day!  Let’s take a peek at what’s coming up!

This Week!
