The streets of Dayton, Ohio were filled with pulsating percussive grooves during the 2008 Winter Guard International World Championships as drum ensembles from across the United States and the world faced off at the University of Dayton Arena from April 10-12.

As a proud strategic partner of WGI, Drum Corps International brought an extreme tempo to the festival marketplace which was buzzing with fans and performers while chock full of vendors, artists, and some of the world's leading marching arts product and instrument companies.

Thousands of young performers and fans flocked toward the DCI booth to get the latest information about the 2008 DCI Summer Tour, DCI's "Countdown" movie theater event, and several upcoming educational summer camps presented by OnQ Performance Education including a Marching & Music WorQshop hosted in conjunction with Northern Illinois University and the OnQ National Drumming Camp coming to four locations across the United States.

Drum Corps International salutes all Winter Guard International performers and looks forward to seeing many of you this summer when you take the field with the world's most elite and exclusive marching music ensembles on the DCI Summer Tour.
