First Annual Veggie Parade in New York City

The first Veggie Pride Parade in American took place in Greenwich Village, New York City, on Sunday. The parade went from the area of Meat Packaging District to Washington Square Park.
Along with a festival of rock music, speakers and exhibitors, the Veggie Pride Parade also sponsored a costume and poster contest with great prizes. Luckily May Wah was able to participate in the contest. The winner of the contests was able to win great prizes including $50 gift certificate for purchases at our store front, 213 Hester Street, New York, NY 10013

Although we were not able to participate as exhitbitors this year, we still went to the parade to support vegetarianism. Take a look at our pictures:
Our dear Susana hugged a tree to represent her love for the green world.
Here's Stephanie with the star of the day, Penelo Pea Pod.
Hopefully we will be able to participate in more activities for next year's veggie parade.
