WORLD VEGAN DAY 2006 - What a Success!
Wow! This years event was even bigger than last year! The new venue at Phoenix Park Community Reserve in East Malvern provided adequate indoor and outdoor spaces for the more than 70 stallholders exhibiting on the day, a great space for the musical entertainment and the fabulous playground kept the vegans of tomorrow happy!!!
Although a little overcast in the morning, the sun came out mid afternoon as a crowd of around 200 gathered to watch Steve Kilbey on the grass. The many other wonderful performers on the day added a pleasant backdrop for the festival feel of World Vegan Day.
(Photos of the event are on their way!!!)
