Summer @ Rocky Point Weekend Rundown

There’s a heat wave just about everywhere these days! It sure feels that way in Rocky Point, with over 60% humidity, but we haven’t technically hit 3 digits and next week is only aiming for the mid-90s°F.  Sunrise and sunset walks are still very much a thing as those in the know can already sense August’s heavy cloak ready to envelop us.

At this time of year, you may find some businesses in Rocky Point on reduced schedules, and even some out for vacation or readying for some time off. That goes for musicians as well so be sure to check with your favorite local band as to their summer plans.  Let’s run down the weekend.

BORDER HOURS (Lukeville/Sonoyta) continue to be 6 a.m – 8 p.m.   Next announced extended hours not until Sept. 1st.


July 14th – Environmental Workshops (en español) starting from 4 p.m. at Shrimp Plaza – check kiosko   Topics: Conserving Mezquite Seeds,  “Ecosystem Services”, Workshop on making folkart out of recycled materials, Workshop on developing a compost pile
