Monday was the feast day of San Sebastian, patron saint of the town and the town's previous name was Villa de San Sebastian.
The town is about an hour's drive southeast of Mazatlan but centuries away from the tourists as it is located in the foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountains.
On the way there we made a stop at the hot springs.
This old community was established in 1565 by the Spanish conquistador Francisco de Ibarra.
Like most Mexican towns life evolves around the town square and the church.
Because it was a feast day the town square was teeming with activity. Here's a band in front of the church.
Lots of vendors
I been told, on good authority that this is the best ice cream made by his wife.
A little posing?
The little boys mainly wore white shirts and pants but this little gentleman was all decked out in a white suit with white gloves.
Wandering around town we took these random photos.
These murals are inside the cultural building above. They depict the fiery history of the town as it was burned down three times, by the Spanish, the French and then the Mexicans!
Concordia is considered the "home" of the raspados, a snow cone made with real fruit syrup!
Pretty hair bows to attract all the little girls.
