About 400 students from a Southern California high school showed up for prom a week early -- because the invitations had the date wrong.

KABC-TV Los Angeles reports that the teens from Bloomington High School traveled 40 miles to a park where they believed prom was going to be held, only to discover they hadn't been told that the date of the big night had changed. The principal says there was miscommunication with event planners.

As a quick fix, students were served chicken strips in a hastily arranged small hall where someone played music from a laptop computer.

The San Bernardino County school's calendar and the prom invitations listed the event on April 27, but it was actually scheduled to take place for May 4.

A semi-formal substitute event is planned for May 18.
