New Yorkers never cease to amaze me. Only in New York does a kid come home from the local public elementary school with your kid and blithely announce that ‘Daddy won the Pulitzer Prize this morning.’ Only in New York does a tunnel shut down to bring in circus elephants. Only in New York are vegan and macrobiotic diets by tots not given a second thought.
And only in New York is the Veggie Pride Parade an annual event.
Ok, maybe some of these things happen outside New York. But they occur here with great regularity.
The Veggie Pride Parade, Sunday May 16, starts at 11am in the West Village. It ends at Union Square Park, where free vegan food will be served.
Kids and adults are encouraged to dress up and enter the costume contest. Presumably, those in fur and leather will not be awarded prizes.
