The Lindbergh High School Band headed to Pasadena, California Wednesday morning to perform in the Rose Bowl parade.
For the trip, 220 students raised more than $100,000.
The band performed at the parade several years ago, and their director said it is always a blast.
"The whole parade experience... you just can't put it into words," band director David Wyss said.
The band's flight to California departed around 6:30 a.m. Wednesday.
The 129th Rose Bowl Parade is set for Jan. 1 at 8 a.m. and will feature floats, marching bands and horses along a 5.5 mile route on Colorado Blvd.
The Georgia Bulldogs and Oklahoma Sooners will compete in the Rose Bowl football game at 4 p.m.
