WNLP photos by Bob Wellinski

If you drove by Michigan City’s Ames Field Sunday evening, June 23, 2018, that wasn’t thunder you heard. Eight drum and bugle corps from across the nation gathered to compete in Drum Corps International’s Pageant of Drums. The corps were: Colt Cadets and Colts from Dubuque, IA; Pioneer from Milwaukee; Genesis from Austin, TX; Blue Stars from LaCrosse, WI; Cadets from Allentown, PA; Crusaders from Boston, MA; and Cavaliers from Rosemont, IL. Below are some of Bob’s photos from the evening of music, color and pageantry. For more about Drum Corps International and its events, visit
