More than 160 members of Johnstown-Monroe High School’s Big Red Band have made it safely to Atlanta for their performance in the Chick-fil-A Bowl parade Thursday.
Officials say the band was invited after applying and submitting a video of the band.
The band will perform Thursday at 12:30 p.m. in the parade and then later that evening in pre-game festivities.
The band has also been asked to perform during the half-time show.
Fundraisers were held earlier this year to raise enough money for the Big Red Band to travel to Georgia.
The bowl game features Virginia Tech against the University of Tennessee.
The band will return to Johnstown Friday night.
