Sunday was the Veggie Pride Parade! We had a total blast. Not only did we just show up, but we walked IN the parade. Artie was so psyched about the experience, because he never wanted in any parade of any kind before today. Mac carried signs. Artie carried our mini carrot squeaky toy and wore finger puppets that we got from Ikea in Paramus. We really got into the spirit for community!
After the parade, the festivities continued with exhibitors, speakers and a soapbox. Macaroon even got up on the soapbox and talked about why she went vegetarian and then vegan. It was a wonderful time. We look forward to next year.
Here’s a little slideshow Mac put together of some of pre-parade gathering.
