Addison, IL - As we have announced previously on DCI.org, the 2003 Drum Corps International World Championships will be held at the Florida Citrus Bowl in Orlando, FL August 4th through 9th. Those of you that attended in 1996, 1997 and 1998 you have no doubt marked your spot for your return visit, but wait...with the exception of the Wednesday night parade of champions at Epcot, all other activities will be in downtown Orlando. Staying downtown is the only logical option.Why all the hype about downtown? Drum Corps International's newest partner in Orlando, the Central Florida Sports Commission, has secured downtown rooms at way out of town prices. In just a couple of weeks we will post the list of participating downtown hotels. There is a lot to do downtown before and after the events at the Citrus Bowl so make your plans accordingly.2003 World Championships Super 3 tickets are on sale now!
