Students at Andalusia Elementary School on Thursday participated in a character parade.

Visits from Huckleberry Finn, an astronaut, a mermaid, Cruella DeVille and dalmations, George Washington and more.

The parade was a part of the school’s celebration of Read Across America Week, which is held in conjunction with Dr. Seuss’s birthday.
