With weather topping in at the low 80s, and a chance of brief cloudier days, April is calmly settling in over Rocky Point. Yet, weekends are filled with activity from horseshoes to cornhole, baseball to fishing. Before we start, we want to be sure folks know TICKETS ARE NOW ON SALE FOR CIRCUS MEXICUS XXV. That’s right, Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers much anticipated multi-day yearly music concert right here in Rocky Point…quite frankly it’s a festival filled with nightly concerts, beach soccer, and the not to be missed Mañanathon @ JJ’s as it all winds down. Get your spot! Also, Sami won’t be on the radio this Friday with Felix as she’s up at Phoenix BikeFest in Glendale, AZ, promoting the 2016 Rocky Point Rally!
