The Veggie Pride Parade, NYC, 2008
costume and slogan contest

IMPORTANT NOTE: Not all of the 2008 parade prizes have been distributed. Due to dificulties with the sound system at the post-parade rally, which forced us to rearrange the program on stage, we were a bit rushed with the awards ceremony. The following winners still need to come forth to obtain their vouchers and/or certificates for their prizes: The "Give A Damn" T-shirt wearer, the "pink lady" and baby "pig," and the carrot. If you know any of these people, please let them know a prize awaits them.
