Not only that, but the bands are all over town. One is apparently staying or practicing at a church just a block or so from my house. To a former HS and college band person like me, the sound of a marching band in the neighborhood is quite distinctive and not mistakable for anything else!Speaking of crowds at LOS and other places downtown --- we have been on quite a string of drawing crowds to local events here lately. Brickyard 400 a few weeks ago, Drum Corps Int'l World Championships at LOS this week; Some kind of Women's Christian gathering this weekend at Conseco; First Friday gallery shows tonight; Home series at Victory Field next week; Gen Con next week; Colts home pre-season opener in a week and a half. Fringe festival starting soon on Mass Ave. State Fair for the next two and a half weeks. Lots going on. Definitely should be keeping all of the hotels and restaurants pretty busy.
