Attendees will be getting more than just a great show - the DuPage County Hounds will be giving away tickets to their season games as well as tickets to the 28th Annual Cavalcade of Brass contest to be held on July 13, in Lisle, Ill.
"We're excited to be a part of the opening day celebration of the DuPage County Hounds," said Craig Rasin, Ticketing Manager and member of The Cavaliers Board of Directors. "The fan base that we enjoy here in Lisle and the surrounding area allows us to feel part of this community, and we look forward to performing for the Hounds' season opener."
