Veggie Walkers Needed!

Veggie Walkers Needed!

This Saint Patrick’s Day, Saturday, March 17th 2012, come be apart of history! The Downtown Bethlehem Association will present the “Living the Green Life” Float by Bethlehem VegFest, in the Bethlehem Celtic Cultural Alliance’s “Parade of Tartans” St. Patrick’s Day Parade located on Broad and Main Streets at 1:00pm We are looking for a few good veggies to walk with us! All will be rewarded with fun, but one lucky “veggie” will be awarded with fame and $100 cash prize (not to mention a chance to become VegFest 2012 Mascot)!

In case you missed it last September, “VegFest” is a Vegan/Vegetarian festival with a “Green” initiative, educating visitors from far and wide about the benefits of healthier eating habits and sustainable living through food demos, expert speaker’s, earth friendly shopping, animal adoption agencies, fitness demos and SO much more. In it’s inaugural year, attendance more than doubled what was to be expected to attend on the South Bethlehem’s Greenway Linear Park and the planning of 2012 started immediately after it wrapped up. The anticipation for the 2nd Annual VegFest is palatable and YOU can become part of it’s history in the DBA’s “Veggie Walker’s Contest”!

Here’s how it works! First, fill out a FREE registration form from The Downtown Bethlehem Association (561 Main St. Ste.200 Bethlehem, Pa. 18018) necessary for participation. Next, create your most authentic, creative vegetable costume you can think of! Maybe you feel like a tomato or eggplant? Perhaps you prefer a stick style vegetable as a carrot or celery? Whether your costume is leafy, plump, juicy or “rooted”…….get ready for a bushel of fun that can’t be “beet”! Get ready to step off on March 17, 2012 with The Downtown Bethlehem Association staff and VegFest Vendors which starts out on Broad St. and continues down Main St. to the Fairgrounds. One lucky vegetable-clad individual will win $100 cash prize, awarded by our secret panel of Judges! The winner of the contest will also be considered for the chance to be “VegFest 2012 Mascot”…and make all other contestants pea green with envy!

Interested contestants should contact Loly Reynolds at or 610-739-1273 to receive a registration form for participation.
