Can you hear that? It’s just some of the traditions that would normally be ringing out across the city this time of year: Peregrinaciones (processions/pilgrimages for Virgen de Guadalupe). Posadas (Holiday parties). Piñatas. Ponche. Still, there’s plenty of holiday spirit around as we count down the rest of 2020, so let’s get to it.
Whether you find yourself in Rocky Point, or catching up on our beachside town from afar, we invite you to join in the holiday season by taking part in one or another of the several food, toy, blanket, and coat drives across the community. Be sure to visit our Holiday Giving Guide.
