CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Members of the "Drills of Hope Community Band" boarded a charter bus off of Remount Road on Sunday afternoon heading to MLK parades in two different states.

The group will march in a Martin Luther King Jr. parade on Sunday evening in Chester, South Carolina.

The group says they are then heading to Atlanta, Georgia to participate in two other parades on Monday.

The "Drills of Hope" marching band was created to encourage kids to keep off drugs and away from alcohol.
