PHOTOS: Hindu wedding procession passes through downtown Bradenton
When I arrived in downtown Bradenton today around 10:15 the last thing I expected to see was horse-drawn carriage, a van blaring music and a large group dressed in colorful attire.
Turns out I had walked right into the arrival of the groom's party in the form of a formal procession, a pre-party of sorts, if Wikipedia is right, for a traditional Hindu wedding.
I was told the groom was Suketu Pathak and that grew up in Sarasota but lives in Cincinnati, Ohio.
