We all know the roar of motorcycles has become a November tradition in town, but organizers of the yearly Rocky Point Rally – now entering its 15th year – are hoping bikes will also help get the year started at the 1st Kings Day Toy Run set for this weekend! With a number of local artisans already lined up, boot-stomping music, and tasty bites to be served up by culinary students at the Technological University of Puerto Peñasco (UTPP), not to mention rising temperatures and sunny skies, this should prove to be fun for all! Come on out!
Jan. 9th – 6 p.m. at Banditos – Rising country star Matt Farris and good rally amigo will be back to help get things started early, and the Toy Run spirit flowing!
Jan. 10th – Kings Day Toy Run Fiesta 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Plaza del Camarón Food! Music! Artists! All are invited to bring a toy (no toy weapons please, and unwrapped is ok) to Shrimp Park to help add to those collected at the Bike Parade in November. Many local artists will be there including: spray paint creations of Victor Alemán, photography of Tony Ballesteros, visual arts by Socorro González, jewelry of Judy Ridgway, CEDO t-shirts and gifts, ironwork of Ricardo Monjarez, recycled art by Alma Yanez, and much more!
Around 1:30 p.m. gifts will be loaded up on bikes – plus in whatever other vehicles people may have – to form a short parade from Plaza del Camarón to *the Puerto Peñasco EXPO Convention Center where the local DIF will be holding their grand Kings Day gift-giving event for kids from across the community! Folks are encouraged to dress up as Kings (yes, we’re talking the Kings from the nativity scene), Santa Claus, or even angels for the Toy Run!
Jan. 10th – 6 p.m. at Dukes. Wrap up the Fiesta Weekend once again to the country strumming of Matt Farris – plus, Duke’s has parking inside for bikes if you’d like!
