A celebration of the Vegan lifestyle

By Cristina Aguirre

Vegetables, belly dancers and organic underwear have little in common, but combine them and Chicago VeganMania comes to life. At the Pulaski Park Fieldhouse, 1419 W. Blackhawk St., on Oct. 9, things were greener than usual. The festival, in its second year, included chef demonstrations, a variety of speakers on veganism, medical professionals, bands, a lounge for people to relax, performances and a marketplace of vegan-friendly products. The Chronicle brings you exclusive footage of the festival.
