This Father’s Day weekend we’d like to send our best to all the fathers out there, particularly of course to our own and to my bro! While the wild calendar of activities has settled down somewhat following all the music last weekend, we’re still looking forward to an exciting summer as the humidity starts to creep in and temperatures continue to rise. Believe it or not, for many in town the busy part of the year is just around the corner with schools in Mexico letting out around mid-June!
Looking to hit the beaches ourselves a bit, possibly without cameras strapped around our necks as we hop from activity to activity, this weekend rundown is actually more of a glimpse at summer… The Weekend Rundown will be back in full swing in September. In the meantime, be sure to check our Event Calendar for ongoing updates!
Let’s get to our Father’s Day Weekend Rundown!
