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!
– Part of Blvd. Juarez when coming into town is OPEN. Remain alert at stop light as traffic is now more active at that intersection and that particular spot has seen better days (linking Blvd. Juarez to Blvd. Josefa Ortiz and Blvd. Samuel Ocaña).
– IMPORTANT! Road work in front of City Hall is moving along quickly, though remain alert to detours in area. **UPDATE** BLVD. JUAREZ OPEN TOWARD OLD PORT ***
