Hola Febrero! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

banner_68e4750d8f2461520164fa774e4b2097 Hola Febrero! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!We’ve had a busy week over at Rocky Point 360 as we’re moving into a new office! After nearly two years at our spot in Plaza Fremont, we’ve moved along the boulevard and found a new casa next to Plaza del Camarón in the relatively new Plaza Pelicano (or, as more commonly known, where Yummi Salads is).  We’ll be steps away from City Hall and the local Chamber of Commerce (CANACO) offices, and we’re also glad to announce the Puerto Peñasco Convention and Visitors Bureau Office (OCV) is also now in Plaza Pelicanos (you can see their colorful windows from Shrimp Park).   We’re on the second floor, so come by and say hi when you get a chance!

In the meantime, let’s rundown the weekend and take a look at upcoming events for the Spring.

This weekend

It’s a relatively quiet weekend in town event wise, though local tour boats are more than active these days with eager folk headed out to sea hoping to glimpse a whale or two along the whale. Pictures from this year’s whale watching season have been simply spectacular! Tours have captured incredible moments of whales, dolphins, sea lions, and of course birds that have flocked to the area to dine on swarms of sardines (we hope to have more on this phenomenon shortly).

Sunday – Feb. 9th – Cycle Day!

10 a.m. Plaza a la Madre – A 3rd Family Bike Day will be departing around 10 a.m. (registration starts at 9 a.m.) with cyclists making their way down Blvd. Juarez to the Malecón and back through the Mirador until returning to the starting point.

207 miles cyclists arrival – sometime early to mid-afternoon we hear those participating in the 207 miles bike ride from Peoria to Puerto Peñasco will be reaching their final destination at the 1Mission camp outside of town.

Valentine’s Day – Full Moon!

Just about every dining spot and local watering hole is preparing for Valentine’s Day with special menus, music, and lots of love!  Felíz Día de Amor y de la Amistad!
