Ok folks, it’s time for the second annual Veggie Pride Parade on Sunday. Organized by proud pea-pod Pam Rice, it’s a celebration of our veggie way of life. What could be cooler than hundreds of vegetarians parading through NYC’s Meat Packing District, painting the streets—green?
Paint a clever sign or put on a costume or done your favorite witty tee, and join other veg-heads to express your plant-based pride. While marching to Union Square, turn (meat)heads and be the talk of the town. It was a lot of fun last year. I held the banner in front of the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary‘s Meat-Eater’s Colon float. The parade ends at Union Square Park, where the fun continues with tables, speakers, and music by Cheryl Hill.
