9 Apr 15

In a solemn ceremony yesterday, Mazatlán Mayor Carlos Felton, the municipal council and naval and military authorities celebrated the 100th anniversary of Mazatlán becoming an independent municipality.

Municipalities in Mexico became independent under laws enacted by Emiliano Zapata and Venustiano Carranza in 1915.
