DO not be surprised if you see monsters, superheroes and Star Wars characters marching along Main Road, Boolaroo today.
The students of Speers Point Public School will don capes and crowns this morning as they dress up as their favourite fictional characters for the school's Book Week celebrations.
This year's costume theme is "across the universe".
Rather than a traditional parade inside the parameters of the school gates, the students will show off their costumes as they walk along Main Road from 10am.
They will then return to the school for a morning tea, book fair, cake stalls and a sausage sizzle.
They have been reading Children's Book Council of Australia shortlist books in the lead-up to the event.
Principal Chris Payne said he had encouraged staff to think outside the box this year.
