Show Pride for Veg Lifestyle at Annual Parade

The third annual Chicago Veggie Pride Parade will take place at 12 p.m. May 31, in Grant Park, to celebrate vegetarian and vegan lifestyles. With speakers, a costume contest and tons of fun, the parade is a wonderful, all-encompassing event to raise awareness of the general public about the benefits of a plant-based diet and support local vegans and vegetarians. Part of a national movement, the parade is a family- and pet-friendly event.

Everyone and anyone is invited to join in the walk, socialize and learn about or celebrate the veg lifestyle, whether for ethical, environmental, health or spiritual reasons. The mission of the parade is to unify the voices of everyone that sees an advantage to a plant-based diet and wishes to share and promote it and bring public attention to the global impact of our food choices.
