A high school band from northeast Nebraska is scheduled to leave Thursday on a trip to the Chik-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta.
The 52 band members from Allen Consolidated Schools and 11 adult sponsors will travel on a bus and three vans to competitions and performances connected to Sunday's game.
Band director Richard Lacy says that band members and community raised the $42,000 needed for the trip.
The band will march in the Chik-fil-A Bowl Parade, be involved in the pregame and halftime performances and visit a number of Atlanta tourist attractions.
The Allen school has 52 of its 66 students participating in band.
