Spring is just around the corner, but we have been enjoying Spring weather all of February. For those of you who plan your trips a couple of months ahead of time here are just a few of the events you can come and enjoy. First let me remind you of the major college ”Spring Breaks“. From March 6 t0 March 13 is ASU followed by NAU and U of A March 12-20. There are still rooms available but they won’t last long. We also have colleges in Colorado, New Mexico, Texas and Utah who come down, so it is always pretty busy.
The Mermaid Market’s is always fun to go to at Shrimp Park. They will be held March 5th and March 19th. If you are looking for a “special gift” this is the place to go. Everything from one of a kind jewelry pieces, apparel, home made candies and other food items, metal work and art and photos from local artists.
March 17th is St. Patrick’s Day in the US but we celebrate it big time here in Puerto Peñasco. Wear your green and go to any of the local bars for green beer and Irish fare.
March 18th – April 4th is Easter break for the schools in Mexico. From Good Friday – Easter Sunday, it is called Semana Santa or Easter Holy week. Lots of celebrating and Rocky Point is bursting at the seams. March 21 is the birthday of Benito Juarez and it is a Mexican National holiday and long weekend. Banks will be closed, so plan ahead.
In Cholla Bay the OTL (over the line) baseball tournaments are April 2, June 11 and Oct. 22. Cholla Bay will have other events, but this is what we have so far. April 9 is the CBSC Horseshoe Tournament.
At last Easter Sunday, when we can relax in peace and quiet. Wonderful day to spend time with our families and friends on the beach.
April starts out with a BANG. On the 2nd is the 2nd Annual Mermaid Market’s – New Orleans Cajun Party. This year the Bayou Brother’s will be entertaining the crowds and were a crowd pleaser last year. This is a great day, so get their early for some great food and drinks and some cool music. This is a great group from the San Diego area so we are looking forward to having them again.
The TOMA COLOR RACE is scheduled for April and is a 5K and 10K. For more info on this go to Facebook.com/TomaColor5k. Funds go to local charities.
April 16th will be a busy weekend with the BEER BEACH OLYMPICS on Sandy Beach and as you can see form their flyer, it should be a really fun event. Also again the 2nd Mermaid Market of the month. The following weekend April 23rd will be the International Jazz Fest. Watch here for more details as they become available. Plan to come down for this one as we have some great music lined up for your entertainment. Last but not least on April 30 is the RockyPoint Triathlon held at Las Palomas Beach and Golf Resorts. The town will be filled with lots of athletic folks, so come and join them.
One more item to plan early on is the Torneo de 10th Anniversary at Las Palomas Golf course. This event will be held May 13 – 15. Check the flyer for all the details.
