October 15th held the 2nd Annual Tampa Bay Veg Fest in downtown Tampa, Florida. The weather was perfect: sunny and warm. There were loads of vendors, plenty of food, and a great turn-out of people: vegan, vegetarian, and other. It was an event that required many hours of hard work from so many volunteers. I, myself, was a volunteer the day of the event, and I have to say, being so involved in the event made it more difficult to truly enjoy everything. I was so busy and pulled in so many directions, but yet my 10-hour day felt like only 4. The day truly flew by.
But regardless, it was a great event.
There were lots of critters from rescue groups...
And lots of food...
