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 by bus and three vans to competitions and performances connected to Sunday's game.
Band director Richard Lacy said band members and the 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.
