High temps will delay start of Saturday's DCI Kalamazoo event
Due to the extreme heat expected in Michigan for the next few days, for the safety of the spectators and the performers, Drum Corps International will delay the start of the DCI Kalamazoo
event scheduled for Saturday, July 7 at Western Michigan University. The event will now begin at 8 p.m. (ET).
"By delaying the start, we're anticipating that we'll be able to escape some of the heat as the sun goes down, keeping the welfare and safety of our corps members in mind while also ensuring that spectators will be able to enjoy their outstanding performances in greater comfort," DCI Director of Events Susan Kuehnhold said.
