Marching band members at Pearl River Community College are making final preparations for their performance next Monday in the inauguration parade for President Barack Obama's second term.
The members of the Spirit of the River marching band will represent the State of Mississippi in the 1.5 mile parade. They'll play "God Bless America."
Wednesday afternoon, the 148-member band practiced one last time. They'll hit the road Saturday for an 18-hour bus ride to Washington, D.C.
"About 90 percent of the kids have never been to D.C. before, so they're excited about that," said Kyle Hill, director of bands at Pearl River Community College.
"This is going to be a great experience," said Cody Morris, a sophomore trumpet player. "It's just out of this world, because it's part of history," he said.
"I'm probably going to be so excited, I know I'm going to be nervous," said Magnolia Allen, another sophomore band member. "It's marching for the president, but it's going to be a wonderful experience," she said.
On Sunday, the band will take a quick tour of the nation's capital. They'll return on Tuesday.
