Allentown July 1

Allentown is the Fenway Park of drum corp.
The field is great and the stands on the hill act like a big speaker.
The park across from the field is one of the best spots to watch corps warm up.
If you have never been to a show at Allentown make plans to attend one.
The July 1st YEA show at Allentown was basically a repeat of the night before at Westminister MD but what a difference a day makes.
Division 1 drum corp is designed to be seen in a stadium and J Birney Crumb Stadium is the perfect venue. Example 1 The Boston Crusaders. Watching the Crusaders Saturday night was like seeing the corp for the first time, when in fact I had seen the corp 24 hours earlier. The sound visuals and props were great drum corp and the execution was superb.Apparently I wasn’t the only one to think so as Boston edged out Carolina Crown to take 3rd Place on this evening.
