US Labor Day Weekend.  It’s a big one!  After a flurry of activity this summer, about two weeks of “down time” once school was back in session, this is a chance for folks to get in a last douse of Rocky Point Summer! With September rolling in, be sure to watch for Independence Day decorations going up (Mexican Independence Day is Sept. 16th), and cooling temps as we ride through the month. Let’s run down the weekend!
