Band is D. C. bound

January 18, 2005

Valdosta - A South Georgia high school band is headed to the presidential inauguration.

The Lowndes High Bridgemen loaded into 12 school buses Tuesday afternoon and left for Washington, D.C. They're one of about 40 bands picked to march in George W. Bush's inaugural parade.

The band will stay in Florence, South Carolina Tuesday night, then arrive in Washington, D.C., Wednesday.

They also marched in the Macy's Parade last year and have been chosen to perform in the Tournament of Roses parade next year.
