Eat your art out! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Sponsored this week by Las Palomas Beach & Golf Resort

Shrimp boats amble just off the malecón. Music, dance, and art in the Old Port. The air is brisk, images of Day of the Dead altars and catrinas start to appear. We’re rounding out October.  If you’re in town today, there’s still time to join “The World’s Greatest Meal” of the local Rotary Club – tonight at Playa Bonita doors open from 5 pm (dinner around 7ish…after a spectacular sunset we’re sure).  …and if you’re coming down for Peñasco’s spot on the stage of the International Cervantino Festival, find a seat on the malecón early evening and enjoy performances throughout the night!  Let’s run down the weekend!
