Bradenton, Florida
Bradenton's proximity to the Floridian Gulf Coast makes the region ripe with centuries-old stories of conquistadors and other seafaring explorers. To better connect the region's maritime history to its robust, large Hispanic community, the Babanegras ("Black Beards") moniker came to light. The identity will be partially brought to life through Marty the Marauder, the region's most famous contemporary Babanegra.
