Franklin County students on trip of a lifetime at Chick-Fil-A Bowl
ATLANTA_ Franklin County High School’s marching band has arrived in Atlanta for a trip of a lifetime – performing on one of the highest-profile sports stages of the year, the Chick-fil-A Bowl in the Georgia Dome on New Years Eve.
Have you ever wondered where Bowl game organizers find all the high school talent for the halftime show? Here’s one clue: Cape Hatteras is one of about a dozen high schools from around the country participating in custom student tours led by Brightspark Travel, which provides hands-on educational experiences for students in marching bands and the performing arts. The students will be entertaining nearly 75,000 people in the colossal, state-of-the-art structure that played home to the 1996 Summer Olympic Games.
Festival participants also march in the National Chick-fil-A Bowl Parade in downtown Atlanta, while the bowl game itself provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform in a televised halftime show. Students on Brightspark’s custom itineraries in Atlanta may also elect to be guided through the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, CNN studios, the Coca-Cola manufacturing museum and a selection of other unique learning experiences.
ESPN coverage of the Chick-fil-A Bowl begins at 8pm EST.
