Todos Santos Plaza, Concord – Project 365

Normally I go to Concord on Tuesday, but this week it was today, Wednesday. This allowed me to take photos of Todos Santos Plaza, which on Tuesday is used for the Farmers Market. It is very hard to get photos of the plaza with altho vendors and people.

The plaza was dedicated in 1869 by its pioneer founders Don Salvio Pacheco, Don Fernando Pacheco and Don Francisco Galindo as the public square in one of the original 20 blocks laid out for the new town. The plaza continues to serve as the site for local celebrations, concerts, carnivals and festivals. The 1993–94 renovation project is the square’s seventh major renovation.
