Rundown brought to us this week by RCPM January Jam! Got your tickets?
As Puerto Peñasco makes its way through the holiday season, replete with posadas, piñatas, y ponche, it’s time to get out and enjoy the lights in town – from the tree at Plaza la Madre to a winding “Festival of Lights” tour through town Dec. 15th & 16th. It’s also the time of year for Christmas concerts and traditional pastorelas (of course the best pastorela being that of our own Susy Mazon). There are just over 10 days until Christmas Day, so let’s run down the weekend – starting with holiday shows by local music, dance, and art programs! Plus, it’s the last chance to catch some fine holiday gifts at the last Mermaids Market in 2016!
