Event: Sun 5/16 Veggie Pride Parade in New York City

Im not, and probably will never be, a vegetarian or vegan because I love bacon. But I also love vegetables. Actually, I LOVE vegetables. I was never the kid who wanted candy, I wanted carrots, cucumbers, and broccolli (my fave!). I don’t even need a dip (though I love dip too) to enjoy it. Yea yea…it’s a little nerdy but I think this parade sounds so entertaining.

The Veggie Pride Parade is a parade in NYC that celebrates and encourages the eating of these dirt grown delicious plants. It’s perfect if you need to persuade your little ones that veggies can be fun. Did I mention exhibitors? This mean FREE STUFF and FREE FOOD….vegan food, but food none-the-less.

I have a question though…other than being perplexed about fat/obese vegetarians and vegans (How much veggie are you eating and are they deep fried?) but I am also confused about vegans eating things that aren’t meat…but are shaped like meat. What the hell is that about? If you don’t like eating chicken, why is your tofu shaped like it?

Anyways, it sounds fun. Check it out if you have nothing to do. It’s supposed to be nice out and Union Square is a good place to be in good weather.

I hope PETA peeps don’t act out, and no one marches with posters of dead pig heads.

Veggie Pride Parade, New York City.
