The veggie pride parade in (Greenwich Village) New York City is this weekend on May 15, 2011.<br><br>
There will be speakers, entertainers, exhibits, music and food.<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span style="font-family:verdana;"><span>Quote:</span></span>
<div class="quote-block"><span style="font-family:verdana;"><span style="font-family:verdana;">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 May 15, 2011, all will come together with one voice, one expression, of veggie pride.<br><br>
The procession will begin at 12 Noon 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.<br><br>
Throughout the day, individuals will be encouraged to speak their mind at the Soapbox Testimonial Station. Other activists will beckon passersby to get a dollar to watch a veggie video.<br></span></span></div>
