Updated 4 p.m. with seating and ticket information.

Due to severe weather conditions, the DCI Central Indiana event scheduled for Friday evening in Muncie, Indiana, will be moved inside to the Emens Auditorium at Ball State University.

The National Weather Service in Indianapolis has issued a flash flood warning for Delaware County, Indiana, and many surrounding areas until 9 p.m. ET.

“We made the choice to move the event to inside for the safety of tonight’s performers and spectators,” said DCI Director of Events Sue Kuehnhold. “This new location is an approved Ball State University weather shelter.”

The change of venue will not effect the event’s start time of 7 p.m. ET. Participating drum corps will perform a standstill exhibition inside the auditorium.

Travel and transit changes

For audience members planning on attending the show, parking has been moved to the Emens parking garage. To access this garage, vehicles should enter off Neely Avenue. The Riverside Avenue entrance will not be accessible due to construction and road closure. Parking for this garage is free of charge after 4 p.m.
