COLUMBIA — March March, the kickoff parade for the True/False Film Fest, featured participants dressed in brightly colored costumes who danced their way down Ninth Street on Friday.

The one-hour parade started at the Boone County Courthouse Square and ended outside the Missouri Theatre. Members of the public were encouraged to dress up in costume.

Some dressed up as magicians and characters from video games, while others wore multicolored outfits and fluorescent wigs. Although most participants simply marched down the street, others were more creative. One group of people paraded while keeping hula hoops on their waists and lassoing the hoops above their heads.

A jazz band and rhythmic drummers provided music, which prompted participants and spectators to dance on the street outside the Missouri Theatre.

The True/False Film Fest runs from Feb. 27 to March 2.
