A parade needs participants so we need you, and you and you! If you are vegetarian or vegan please join us and show Cape Town that we are here and that veg living is great!
Break out the veggie / vegan message tee shirts, dust off the fruity topped hat ala Carmen Miranda, stitch up a ‘peas on earth’ hat, wear orange pants and tee with a green hat (carrot), or red pants and tee with green hat (strawberry) paint up a positive and fun poster / banner and come and be part of Africa’s first VEGGIE PRIDE PARADE at 10 o’clock sharp in Cape Town on Saturday 30th October, from the corner of Long Street and Strand Streets. If you don’t want to dress up, that’s okay too, just come and join us!
We will walk to the Beauty Without Cruelty Awareness Day in conjunction with the Wellness Natural and Organic Market at Jan van Riebeeck Primary in Kloof Street, which is from 9am to 2pm. (About 1½ kms)
It won’t be a long parade, so bring the veggie kids – if only your kids are veg, you can wear a tee that says PROUD PARENT OF A VEG KID and you can join us too!
We will have prizes for the best adult and under 16 outfits (we want funny, clever, inventive) and the best banner / posters too!
I want to see HUNDREDS of you please, so take a days’ leave, set the tape to record, and be out and proudly Veg at 10am in Long Street, at the Strand Str corner!
The market will have music, vegan food demos, organic fruit and veg, stunning art and crafts, animal welfare stands, vegan food, cookies, bakes and cakes and more! Prize giving will be at 12pm and winners must be present to collect their prizes.
