¡Viva la Vida! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Sponsored this week by Banditos

Each year in Rocky Point, U.S. Halloween fiestas meet up and often overlap traditional Mexican Day of the Dead celebrations. While last week may have been about brujas and fantasmas, now is the time to celebrate life and loved ones with Day of the Dead altars and folks dressed as Catrinas.  It’s a colorful time to be in town, dare we say funky as Funkalicious Volleyball will also be hitting the beach once again. Plus, just as each year, that electricity and roar in the air means we’re only a week away from the Rocky Point Rally!  Let’s run down the weekend!
