If you hear a loud buzzing sound coming from Field next weekend, don’t be disturbed — it’s just 250 drones.

The Columbus Crew announced they will host the largest drone light up show in city history after their match against Orlando City SC on Saturday, May 13. A total of 250 drones will be flown for 10 minutes after the game, each with light displays that work together to create larger-than-life designs.

Not only will this be a spectacle to see (and record, send us videos), it also will raise awareness of the importance of children’s mental health in honor of the On Our Sleeves campaign, a local nonprofit.
