Competition is heating up for the world's best all-age drum and bugle corps, as they get set to march into Annapolis over Labor Day weekend for the 2013 Drum Corps Associates World Championships.

A city steeped in tradition as home to the U.S. Naval Academy, Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium will once again play host as more than 20 corps from across the country get set to square off in several events scheduled Aug. 29 to Sept. 1.

Great tickets for this DCA Championship series of events are still available, and if you can't make it to Navy-Marine Corps Stadium, select events will be webcast live on the DCA Fan Network powered by Drum Corps International.
