NEW LONDON--While most kids are on summer vacation, one group of kids are spending their summer running around a football field.
The 7th Regiment is a drum corps based in New London. Kids from across the country, plus one from Italy, are embarking on a national tour, which will bring them around the Northeast and Midwest.
The drum corps is a made up of kids varying in age from 13 to 21. It's made up of three sections: brass, percussion and the color guard. They spend all summer trying to perfect their field show.
They will compete against other drum corps across the country at the Drum Corps International World Championships at Lucas Oil Stadium, starting on August 11.
FOX 61 photojournalist Jeff Langan followed the drum corps as they trained on Thursday.
