It is amazing the January 2019 is almost over! Although we had several events such as the Roger Clyne January Jam Fest, the Annual Golf Tournament at Las Palomas that featured Luis Gonzales of the Diamond Backs and more it was quiet. February will be jam packed with events.
One of the most exciting thing to many is that in February, the WHALES make their appearance. As of this writing, they have been spotted 20 miles out, so this means they will start to come closer to the port area. Want to go Whale Watching you have many choices such as the Pancho Villa, Eco Fun, Sol Chaser and many more.
February 2nd will be the 2nd Annual Seafood Festival Rotary Fundraiser. This is known as Fish Bowl 2019. Here you will also find the Mermaid Market, which is a collection of local artists and vendors. Many local restaurants will provide food samples as well as beverages and there will be music as well. Plan to spend the day shopping and tasting the food while listening to local musicians. Admission is FREE. You can buy food and drink tickets for $1.00 USD each and the samples will take between 1 and 5 tickets. You will not be disappointed. The event will be held at Plaza Del Camaron also known as Shrimp Park, on the corner of Benito Juarez and Blvd. Freemont. The event will run from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Fish Bowl 1 was a huge success, so I am certain the 2nd one will be even better. The following restaurants will be there: Puesta del Sol, El Tapeo, Mare Blu, Mariscos El Malecon, UTPP Culinary School,The Oyster House, Coffee Point, Puerto Viejo (coffee), Sushi Sun and Jerry’s Banquets and 5 more are signing up.
