Kids get in costume for a ‘drug free’ parade
‘Drug free is the way to be:’ that was what Harrison Central Elementary School students were chanting during a ‘drug free’ parade in Gulfport this morning.
Students dressed up in character themed costumes to show they have too much character for drugs. The march was the finale to National Red Ribbon Week, a week dedicated to promoting healthy drug free futures. Kindergarten through third grade students circled around the whole school. The march took place just in time for elementary kids ready to show off their Halloween costumes.
Some of the students have similar answers when it comes to their favorite part about Halloween. Third Grader Maigan Overstreet said, “My favorite part about Halloween is the candy part and when you get to eat it.”
Teachers that dressed up and marched alongside the kids tell News 25 the parade was a good warm up for those who plan on trick-or-treating tonight.
