Labor Day celebration at El Golfo cancelled due to storm
A fierce storm Wednesday forced the cancellation of the annual Labor Day weekend celebration at El Golfo de Santa Clara, Son.
The storm not only caused extensive flooding in and around El Golfo, but also knocked out sections of the road leading to the community, cutting off vehicle access, according to the Department of Tourism Promotion and Development in San Luis Rio Colorado, Son.
The city-sponsored event, San Luis en la Playa (San Luis on the Beach), brings tens of thousands of visitors from Mexico and the Yuma area to the tiny fishing village located on the Sea of Cortez.
Tourism officials said the celebration is being rescheduled for Oct. 11-13, the weekend prior to the Columbus Day holiday.
