Wedding India Style

Brady and I did our annual baseball/football trip this past weekend to Cincinnati and Indianapolis.  We saw a couple ball games and checked things out in both areas.  Strolling around downtown Indianapolis Saturday afternoon we came upon a parade of sorts with music, some loud drumming, people dancing in the street and a dude on a horse.  You can't make it out from my too-distant photo above but it was quite the scene.  I talked to the wedding photographer (foreground above) who told me that it was a Hindu wedding where the groom and his family process to the ceremony with the groom on a horse.  "Where is the bride?" I asked him and he replied "She is with her family waiting for the groom and his folks to show up."
As noted, this is known as the baraat which I always thought was an obnoxious kid.  (If the drumming gets on your nerves watching this video, just mute it.)
