Tuesday's rain didn't stop drum corps from performing at Plymouth High School's "Hoosier Heartland Showcase."

Because of the rain, drum corps groups had to perform on the basketball court instead of the football field.

Groups from all around the world, from as far as the Netherlands, made an appearance.

They're in Plymouth ahead of the Drum Corps International competition in Michigan City on Monday.

This event wasn't scored by judges, but groups say it's a fun way to add a little competition and get practice in before the big event.

"Having seen our marching band have their Harvest Festival here in the gym a couple of times, it sounds really good," Plymouth High School Assistant Principal Ken Olson said. "They do as great a job as being as dynamic as they can be musically with the space that they have. So, I'm looking forward to seeing how they might adapt to that."

Plymouth High School didn't perform, but Olson says it's a good way for their musicians to interact with the best of the best, make friends, and maybe learn a thing or two.
