The Black and White parade pulled through downtown Columbia as part of the festivities surrounding the 19th Black and White Ball on Saturday. Candy and bead necklaces were some of the things thrown to spectators along the way.

COLUMBIA — Families and classmates reunited Saturday morning at the Black and White parade where 20 floats wound down Park Street to Douglass Park as spectators caught candy and necklaces.

The Black and White Ball reunites black alumni of Columbia Public Schools. The event is celebrated to maintain the city's tight-knit African-American community. Alumni come from all over the country. The parade was the first event of the weekend.
