The Lukeville border will finally reopen

Lukeville crossing is set to reopen this week

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced this decision on Tuesday afternoon, confirming that the border crossing will resume normal operations starting at *6 a.m. MST on Thursday.*

Lukeville reopen
In their press release, CBP reiterated their commitment to border security, emphasizing that they will continue to prioritize this mission in response to the ever-evolving situation. "We will keep assessing security situations, adjusting our operational plans, and deploying resources to maximize enforcement efforts against noncitizens who do not use lawful pathways or processes, such as scheduling an appointment via CBP One, and those without a legal basis to remain in the United States," stated the agency.

The closure of the Lukeville border dealt a severe blow to the economy of the surrounding towns, halting the flow of trade and tourism that forms the lifeblood of these communities. However, amidst this economic downturn, a silver lining emerged for the intrepid explorers willing to seek out adventure in the region.

For those bold enough to venture into Rocky Point during the border closure, they discovered a hidden paradise. With fewer tourists, the beaches became serene havens, offering an unparalleled experience of untouched beauty. Adventurers reveled in having these stunning landscapes all to themselves, relishing the tranquility and pristine nature of the coastline.

This reopening marks a significant step towards normalizing operations in the area and will ease access for our residents. We appreciate your patience during this period and hope that this measure proves beneficial for everyone. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out. We are here to assist you!
Speaking on behalf of Castaways, a renowned destination in Rocky Point, special promotions await those eager to embrace this reinvigorated spirit of exploration. Castaways invites travelers to take advantage of these exclusive offers, promising unforgettable experiences against the backdrop of untouched beaches and breathtaking vistas.

Rocky Point Labor Day Weekend

Labor Day Weekend - Rocky Point

Labor Day Weekend, September 2nd thru 4th, 2016.


Rocky Point Labor Day Weekend Castaways

Labor Day is observed in the U.S. on every first Monday in September as a day to recognize the contributions of American workers of all industries to the U.S. economy. It is also meant to give workers a well-earned day off to relax at home or to get out for recreation.

To many, Labor Day marks the end of the summer season, even as Memorial Day marks its beginning. Many see Labor Day as their last chance to get out and take a vacation before summer is gone, and many workers get a two-week annual vacation period with Labor Day Weekend right in the middle of the two weeks off.

Most U.S. schools restart classes, after the long summer break, about a week before Labor Day. Others schools, however, resume classes on the day after Labor Day, thus allowing families to get in their last taste of summer before the school yea gets underway.


Rocky Point Labor Day Weekend Castaways
About Labor Day

The first Labor Day was held in 1882. Its origins stem from the desire of the Central Labor Union to create a holiday for workers. It became a federal holiday in 1894. It was originally intended that the day would be filled with a street parade to allow the public to appreciate the work of the trade and labor organizations. After the parade, a festival was to be held to amuse local workers and their families. In later years, prominent men and women held speeches. This is less common now, but is sometimes seen in election years. One of the reasons for choosing to celebrate this on the first Monday in September was to add a holiday in the long gap between Independence Day and Thanksgiving.

Memorial Day in Rocky Point

Memorial Day, 2016.

Memorial Day, May 27th, 2016.



Memorial Day 2016 Rocky Point

Memorial Day, an American holiday observed on the la Monday of May, honors men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries of memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, at least, it marks the beginning of summer.



Memorial Day 2016 Rocky Point
 

It is unclear where exactly this tradition originated; numerous different communities may have independently initiated the memorial gatherings. Nevertheless, in 1966 the federal government declared Waterloo, New York, the official birthplace of Memorial Day. Waterloo-which had first celebrated the day on May 5, 1866-was chosen because it hosted an annual, community-wide event, during which businesses closed and residents decorated the graves of soldiers with flowers and flags.

Memorial Day traditions

Cities and towns across the United States host Memorial Day parades each year, often incorporating military personnel and members of veterans’ organizations. Some of the largest parades take place in Chicago, New York and Washington, D.C. Americans also observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries and memorials. On a less somber note, many people throw parties and barbecues on the holiday, perhaps because it unofficially marks the beginning of summer.

It is customary to mark the day by visiting graveyard and war monuments. One of the biggest Memorial Day traditions is for the President or Vice President to give a speech and lay a wreath on soldiers’ graves in the largest national cemetery, Arlington National Cemetery, in Virginia. Most towns have local Memorial Day celebrations. Here are some ways you can honor the men and women who serve our country:

  • Put flags of flowers on the graves of men and women who served in wars.
  • Fly the U.S. flag at half-staff until noon.
  • Visit monuments dedicated to soldiers, sailors and marines.
  • Participate in National Moment of Remembrance at 3 p.m. local time.
  • March in a parade.
