The Erie Thunderbirds are officially back. The corps returned to the Drum Corps community with a successful first show in Dubois, PA on June 14th, 2014. During the Small Drum Corps Association event, the Erie Thunderbirds place 2nd overall. At the North East Cherry Festival on July 19th, 2014, the Erie Thunderbirds placed 1st overall in both the parade and the SDCA event. This victory gave the Steel City Ambassadors their first loss in SDCA competition in the 3 year existence of the region.
July is a very busy month for the corps. We have several event planned. These events include the 4th of July Parade in Millcreek, the North East Cherry Festival and parade (SDCA), Save an Eye Football game, and the Lake Erie Fanfare (DCI).
The Erie Thunderbirds will be concluding their season competing in the Mini Corps Championships at DCA Championships Labor Day weekend in Rochester, NY.
