Some Meridian students got a chance to break the dress code Monday, and dress as their favorite book characters.
Students at Parkview Elementary participated in a Book Character Parade.
Students had the option to choose any character from any book.
We spotted Cinderella and Dora the Explorer, among others.
"Our point is to encourage the students to read, to find a character that they really, really love, and to dress up as that character," said second grade teacher Fern Ward.
Students in pre-K through fifth grade took part in the parade.
