Hard to believe, but this year the Rockford Phantom Regiment will be celebrating 40 years of Show of Shows here in Rockford. This year's Annual Show of Shows date has been set. Here's more about tickets. 

As in years past, The Regiment's annual Alumni Homecoming will start on Thursday July 2 with their Show of Shows Kickoff Party which is open to the public.

The Phantom Regiment Show of Shows will take place at Boylan Stadium in Rockford, Illinois Friday July 3, 2015, part of an exciting weekend of interactive alumni happenings.

Besides the Kickoff party which is open to all, Regiment Alumni will have an opportunity to have lunch with the 2015 Phantom Regiment. "Alumni" include former members, staff and volunteers for the Regiment and Cadet Corps.

This event is entertaining, magical, and an evening that will touch all of your senses. One word of advice is to bring a blanket, stadium seat or cushion because you will be glued to your seat all night enjoying the competition between Drum and Bugle Corps.
