This weekend rundown is sponsored by Frenchy’s Bar & Grill (look for the Canadian Maple leaf) – how timely!
Following an early morning heavy rain, Puerto Peñasco is in the folds of fabulous weather on this “Back to the Future” day. Hovering skateboards aside, the town is gearing up for weekend activities to mark International Coastal Clean-up day, ongoing recognition of October as Breast Cancer Awareness month, and fundraising events from softball to horseback riding, and even an off-road poker run! So, grab your DeLorean and let’s head into the weekend and look ahead to what’s coming up in Rocky Point! Roads: Overpass construction continues just north of town. Remain alert to short detours. First intersection when entering town is open (Blvd Juarez / Blvd Ocaña / Blvd Josefa) though remain alert to road work on Blvd Josefa – and odd detours – if heading that route.
