6th Annual Veggie Pride Parade NYC

The 6th annual NYC Veggie Pride Parade will take place in Greenwich Village/Union Square, on Sunday, March 24, 2013. For vegetarians, the day's festivities are sure to give their meatless way of living a much needed boost.

Parade participants are encouraged to dress up in costumes and wear sign boards announcing their pride in their vegan lifestyle. Local restaurants, veg groups, and veg everything will be represented with banners and chants. The parade will include animal-rights activists, environmentalists, and people simply concerned with their health. But on March 24, 2013, all will come together with one voice, one expression, of veggie pride.

The procession will begin at 12 Noon, sharp (line-up: 11 a.m.), in the Old Meat Packing District (where 9th Ave. & Gansevoort St. intersect). It will culminate in a festival for all to enjoy at the north end of Union Square Park. There, revelers of all persuasions will hear well-known vegan speakers and music by vegan artists. They'll all partake in free vegan food and explore a wide variety of exhibitor presentations. At 2 p.m., a costume contest will take place.

Throughout the day, individuals will be encouraged to speak their mind at the Soapbox Testimonial Station. Other activists will beckon passersby to take (yes, take) a dollar to watch a veggie video.

VPP is a free event.  Spread the word.

    The OWS camera person/crew seemed disinterested in the speakers (called it 'the establishment') and went on to an overlapping horse protest Sunday afternoon (right in the middle of Maribeth Abrams, producer of the Tofu 1-2-3 video with her ex-husband - the camera person commented, truthfully or not, that he didn't eat tofu because he ate nature foods: fruits, grains, beans, vegetables - nothing processed).

    Having OWS do the video was a streak of brilliance, but we would have wanted them to video the entire program in the Square, not merely the noise-making parade.
