Day 44

Parade / Competition: Michigan City, Indiana 

A parade on the 5th of July? You bet! Each year when Michigan City hosts the "Pageant of Drums" DCI competition, all of the drum corps also participate in their 5th of July parade. The corps is staying at Michigan City High School (8466 West Pahs Road), a long time supporter and housing site of the Colts, Colt Cadets, and numerous other drum corps. 
The competition tonight should be a spectacular one, with performances from: Legends, Colt Cadets, Genesis, Colts, Troopers, Phantom Regiment, and the Cavaliers. Almost every memeber falls in love with the show; if not for the great stadium, for the Dairy Queen across the street....
