Sounds like a whole lot of folk are having a whale of time in Rocky Point these days! January has been filled with whale sightings just off our shores, and many local boat trip providers happy to add whale watching tours to their usual day-long, or sunset cruise opportunities. So, let’s add whale watching possibilities to this week’s Rundown!
This evening, Jan. 23, at 6 p.m. in the Municipal Auditorium (across from City Hall) instructors from the new Escuela de Iniciación Artística (Arts Initiation) will be putting on a short performance of El Chelista de Sarajevo as a way to draw community members to the new arts program set to begin on Feb. 4th.
