Sponsored this week by Peñasco Beauty Center – celebrating 10 years in Puerto Peñasco!
It’s heating up, and we don’t mean just because Spring Break was steaming. While evenings are still cool, and we hear a “cold front” (low 70s) is coming through, days are beautiful and we’re ready to ring in Spring! With the first busy weeks of Spring Break behind us, we turn to at least one more week (NAU break March 17 – 23) and then… SEMANA SANTA (Holy Week). Let’s get to it and see what’s up this St. Patty’s weekend. Don’t forget, tickets for Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers 2018 Circus Mexicus are now available…with VIP packages going quick! NOTE: Monday is a BANK HOLIDAY in Mexico (in honor of Benito Juarez Day on March 21st)
