However you know the show, whether it be: The Rockford Show, Homecoming, Boylan, Show of Shows, The Home Show, it’s still our annual alumni homecoming!
The Phantom Regiment has performed at Boylan Stadium reaching as far back as 1969. Originally those performances included half-time shows for the Rockford Rams semi-pro football team mixed together with a few competitions run by Rockford’s 4th of July committee. The first Show of Shows operated by the Phantom Regiment was held at Boylan in 1976.
The show has grown over the years to be more than just a drum corps competition. Year after year, it’s the one chance our alumni, staff, and volunteers have to reconnect with their past and stand again on the same ground that has hosted the corps nearly every year for over 40 years.
Boylan Stadium in Rockford, Illinois will once again play host to the Phantom Regiment’s 42nd Annual Show of Shows on Friday, July 7, 2017, part of an exciting weekend of interactive alumni happenings. Scheduled events include the annual kickoff and opportunities for interaction between corps members and alumni, former staff, volunteers and cadet corps alumni.
