The Auburn University marching band will be heading to the nation's capital next week. The 320-member band has been selected to participate in the 55th Presidential Inaugural Parade following the swearing-in-ceremony of President George Bush.
Auburn band director Rick Good describes the Jan. event as, "a once in a lifetime opportunity."
The AU band is the only one from Alabama invited. Another group of Alabamians, the Mobile Azalea Trail, will also participate in inaugural activities.
