Attendance figures soared at this year's Drum Corps International World Championships. With over 20,200 paid entries and another 6,000 or so seats reserved for participants, sponsors, and recipients of special recognition, the total reaches beyond the 26,000 mark. While high sales is rewarding in it of itself, the incredible feeling that the performers get when staring up into 26,000 cheering fans is priceless. Thank you fans for making this event such a memorable one for the young women and men who most benefit from a packed house!
