Tournament of Drums, a long-held tradition in Cedar Rapids, is moving to Marion’s Linn-Mar Stadium because of construction at Kingston Stadium. The show brings nearly 1,000 young adults from seven drum and bugle corps nationwide to compete in this musical extravaganza. A project also is underway to collect the history of drum and bugle corps in Cedar Rapids. Former members and staff are being interviewed, and photos and memorabilia are being gathered for a book. To contribute, bring photos and documents to the show or email them to CorpsHistory@gmail.com

7 p.m. Friday (8/2), Linn-Mar Stadium, 3333 10th St., Marion; $13 advance at West Music and Hills Bank, $15 at the gate, free ages 5 and under; Tournamentofdrums.com
