Weekend rundown sponsored this week by The Club @ Islas del Mar
Only 20 shopping days till Christmas! You’re welcome. Actually, if you’re planning on celebrating Navidad in Puerto Peñasco, it’s probably more customary to open gifts on the night of the 24th. However, the holiday spirit is already all over town and you can jump right in by donating toys, blankets, warm clothing, and even pet supplies! Let’s get to it and run down the weekend.
Plus, don’t miss hometown boxer Juan Francisco “Gallo” Estrada lighting up HBO on Saturday!
