Something to Remember! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

capones-rundownbanner1 Something to Remember! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

This weekend’s rundown sponsored by Capone’s – check out their Memorial Weekend quick appetizer menu!

Hold onto your sombreros, cachuchas, caps, and shades – one, because it’s windy again and two because we’re in for a doozie of activities this Memorial Day Weekend in Rocky Point! After last year’s Memorial Day numbers topped those from the recent past, we can only expect that the amount of visitors to town this weekend will top even that! Once again, remain alert to roadwork, detours, and yes even a few “how the #%* am I supposed to get from here to there?” moments; and you may even see a number of important stop signs that have been replaced around the city. It’s all worth it! Enjoy, and let’s run down the weekend!
