Summer’s not over! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Today marks the 3 month mark until the 18th Rocky Point Rally – yes, the Greatest Motorcycle Fiesta Just South of the Border. 3 months to go.  Rally goers and spectators are encouraged to register, as proceeds from the voluntary registration go right back into the community via 7 different charity organizations – plus you can register starting now at 18th Annual Rocky Point Rally   Speaking of giving back, schools are almost once again in session and there’s plenty of ways you can help support education in town….including a Bacanora tasting this week – make that mañana!  Let’s run down the weekend and take a look at what’s coming up!

Giving back

There’s still time before school starts! Planning a trip to Rocky Point and wanting to give back to the community?
