Hindu Festival in El Centro

Last week while making our way to the Centro Historico, we found ourselves in the middle of a Hindu festival. We couldn't get a clear cut answer on what festival it was, but a bit of google suggests that it was probably the Kalpathi Ratholsavam (Kalpathi Chariot Festival). You can read about it here, or in detail here.
Needless to say, we can tell you that there were a few Indians, and a lot of hippies, some people that had come up all the way from Mexico city, Indian-Mexican food or Mexican-Indian (not sure what to call it), some books, and lots of incense for sale. Oh, and a stage with some worship we never saw in India, and a few chariots. :-) It was a welcome surprise on a Sunday afternoon.
