Drums Along The Red Cedar Ends

| |

On most Father’s Days since 2000, Menomonie has been privileged to host "Drums Along The Red Cedar" (DARC), a world class drum and bugle corps competition benefiting The Greater Menomonie Area Community Foundation. The event may now have become one more victim of economic circumstances.

Hundreds of youth from throughout the nation have played their hearts out and thrilled audiences at Don and Nona Williams Stadium. Although DARC was the first exposure to this “musical sport” for many in the area, for others it brought back memories of the period from the mid-1950s through the mid-1980s when drum corps were active in dozens of cities in Wisconsin, including several in the Chippewa Valley.
Thanks for the memories!
