Texas VegFest with Vegeria Vegan

Texas VegFest is only two days away and I can't wait!  I am volunteering in the morning, and I can't wait to see the festivities and hear the speakers.  After volunteering, I can't wait to eat myself silly.  Did I mention I can't wait?

Texas VegFest 2013

Texas VegFest is coming on April 6th, 2013!

Town Lake Hike and Bike
