By in Our Blog with 0 Comments

We all know what an increase of 3,500 visitors arriving pretty much all at once upon our little pueblo can make to our economy (that’s about how many passengers an average small cruise ship carries).

By in Our Blog with 0 Comments

In addition to traditional beach volleyball, we can always count on something unique from an Outta Town Productions event, and this year Luis brings us Tri-Ball, the newest and most challenging twist on volleyball to come about in decades.
