Viva Vegie - Block Party
VivaVegie represents veg advocacy
at Manhattan's World's Largest Block Party
The VivaVine: Volume #4, No. 4; Sept./Oct., 1995
The VivaVegie Society was out in full force at the WE CARE ABOUT NEW YORK, INC. "World's Largest Block Party" on August 27, 1995 with about 20 activists, all wearing T-shirts with the image you see at left emblazened on the front ! VivaVegie had a booth at this mile-long street fair, getting more exposure in this one day, perhaps, than it did in the entire year! We had the VivaVegie veal crate on hand, and plenty of copies of 101 Reasons Why I'm a Vegetarian to distribute for donation. This is the second year, The VivaVegie Society has had a booth at this event.
Following is a description of the event sent to us from the WE CARE ABOUT NEW YORK people:
" .... For the tri-state region, it is time to celebrate New York City and three thousands volunteers working year round to enhance our environment." On August 27, 1995, "the World's Largest Block Party" will be taking place on a 1 mile stretch of Madison Avenue in Manhattan (between 28th and 48th Streets). Last year 1.7 million people attended our Block Party featuring family attractions including 4 stages of entertainers, comedians, puppet shows, arts & crafts, food and a petting zoo. Hundreds of environmental and public interest organizations, institutions and businesses will be present."
