ATTN: Merriville, IN Ticket Holders
The Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps will honor ticket holders of the June 28 Merriville, Ind., contest (which was unfortunately rained out) with FREE entrance to the backfield bleachers at Ames Field in Michigan City, Ind., for the 52nd Annual Pageant of Drums Saturday night!
Just bring your ticket stub to the back gate at Ames Field; get a new wristband; and pick a seat on the back bleachers. This will not allow you access to the front side stands (although those tickets are available), but at least you will be IN the house for FREE!
The 52nd Annual Pageant of Drums held at beautiful Ames Field is the second oldest continuous Drum Corps contest in America and will feature the Colt Cadets, Pioneer, Glassmen, Troopers, Blue Stars, Spirit of Atlanta, Bluecoats, Carolina Crown, Classic Cavaliers and The Cavaliers.
You will need to show your ticket stub from Merriville, Ind., to get your FREE wristband.
We will still be selling tickets to the front side that night for $20, if you so desire. We hope to see you Saturday - show starts at 7:00 PM, gates open at 5:00 PM!
The Cavaliers have had to deal with rainouts before at our own home shows in Naperville, Ill., and we know how disappointing it is for fans and corps members when a performance has to be cancelled.
We hope this small gesture helps give the drum corps experience to all that missed out!
