Celebration in Brass Coming ‘Back to its Roots’ in Ankeny Wednesday Night
ANKENY, Iowa -- For over 30 years music lovers have been able to take in some of the best drum and bugle corps in the nation at the Celebration in Brass International. For the first few decades, Celebration in Brass was held at what's now Northview Middle School but the competition got too big for its stadium, forcing it to change locations throughout the metro multiple times since 2007. But this year the Ankney Stadium was able to accommodate and that quickly had corps wanting to go back to where it all started.
