This week the spirit of athletes, fans, and supporters is alive and well across the globe, despite the shocking events that took place at the Boston Marathon on Monday. With all of the great events that take place in Rocky Point, drawing crowds from across the U.S. – Mexico – and beyond, we want to applaud everyone’s ongoing drive to hold fun, competitive, thrilling, exciting, inspirational, thought provoking, adrenalin-filled, sandy, dirty, muddy, wet, charitable, and colorful events here on our shores. With just a quick look at our calendar through June (and into the Fall), this unstoppable spirit is thriving in Puerto Peñasco! Our thoughts are with all across the globe who share the same spirit!
