City pays homage to Ghandi
DAVIE, Fla. (WSVN) -- The City of Davie is paying homage to an iconic spiritual leader.
Thursday, City officials unveiled a seven-foot, 785 pound bronze statue of Mahatma Ghandhi at Falcon's Lea Park.
A local Indian cultural group paid for the $50,000 statue. The unveiling came just a day after what would have been his 143rd birthday.
Davie is now the seventh U.S. city to honor Ghandi, who is known as a symbol of peace.
