Firecrackers! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Plinio-Rivero-sponsor-banner Firecrackers! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!Sponsored this week by Architect Plinio Rivero

Happy 4th of July! Since we last chatted, Mexico elected a new President (who will be sworn in Dec. 1st) – Puerto Peñasco reelected its Mayor (term starts Sept. 16th) – and Mexico got knocked out of the World Cup after falling to Brazil.  Yes, a lot can happen in a week!  Whew!

To celebrate the 4th, last night around 8 p.m. Las Palomas launched their annual firework display – but you can still catch the sparks from the Pirate Boat every time they head out for sunset.  Or just sing a little RCPM Counterclockwise, “…the kids are lightin’ firecrackers boom! Boom! Boom!” However you choose to spend the holiday weekend, enjoy a little red, white, and blue on the rocks and let’s run it down for you:
