Toronto Veggie Pride Parade 2010

by Anita Krajnc

See video

Hundreds participated in Canada's first Veggie Pride Parade on June 5, 2010. The parade featured everything from burlesque dancers to firefighters, a policeman (dressed as a very cute pig), singer-songwriter Loganberry ("Veggie Pride"), Grupo Axé Capoeira, Bollywood dancers along with about two dozen animal rights groups.

The Toronto Veggie Pride Parade, a nonprofit group founded in 2009 by Toronto animal activist Holly Larson, was inspired by similar parades held in New York, LA, and Rome. The Veggie Pride Parade's MC is Kimberly Carroll. For more information, visit: http://veggieprideparade.ca/2010/
