Veggie Pride Parade NYC 2010 a roaring success
The Third Annual Veggie Pride Parade NYC 2010 was a rip-roaring success. Nearly a thousand people marched in the streets of Greenwich Village on May 16, 2010, for compassion, for environmental sanity, and for health awareness. Our numbers easily swelled to 1,500 once we reached Union Square Park (north end), the end-point for the parade and location of the vegan-happy rally & expo. There, costume-wearing vegan-proud individuals were treated to a dozen inspiring speeches, 38 noncommercial exhibitors, cart-loads of free vegan food, live entertainment, as well as heartfelt exhortations from people at the soapbox testimonial station.
