Blue Stars march down the streets of Niles, Illinois on the Fourth of July in 2013.
Although there are no Drum Corps International Tour events scheduled for July Fourth, drum corps will still be in action, marching through cities and towns across the nation to celebrate America's Independence Day. Organized by state and corps, we've compiled a comprehensive list of where and when you can find DCI groups marching in parades or in other performances on Friday. All events listed below will take place on on the Fourth unless otherwise noted. All times shown are local and approximate.
