Hello, November! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

We’ve come to that moment right after Day of the Dead and just before one of the BIGGEST events in Rocky Point! Yes, it’s the fleeting moment of anxiety, excitement, wonder, and awe as the Rocky Point Rally nears – the “greatest motorcycle fiesta just south of the border”!  Now in it’s 15th year, this year’s Rocky Point Rally promises to be over the top and, quite frankly, we can’t wait!  However, before that begins we’ve got a big concert going on in town (1st anniversary of the local radio stations on Nov. 5) and the upcoming celebration of CEDO’s 35th Anniversary.  So, let’s take a look at what’s happening in town, and give you time to find your chaps for next weekend!

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.
