Any place with a calendar of events for this weekend? Does RP360 have one? Lots going on, it’s just spread all over!
This message greeted me this morning as I sat down to a second cup of coffee, shortly after leaving my customary morning stomping grounds near the Old Port. Why yes, there is a calendar of events on Rocky Point 360 – glad you asked. When in doubt, check here: Upcoming Events
Indeed, there are lots of activities this weekend so let’s get right to it. As always, we invite folk to send us information about upcoming events (with as much lead in as possible) so we can help get the word out. We also scour social networks, local papers, newsletters, and tips from general folk to help update our calendar on a (mostly) daily basis.
Feb. 13th – Yes, we’re starting the 3-day weekend a little early
