The Kazoo Band Competition is a fun and unique way to celebrate the Homecoming spirit. Groups will perform a 1-minute song on the ever-popular instrument, the KAZOO! Songs should relate to the Homecoming theme, "Lights, Camera, APPtion", and costumes, props, and choreography are always encouraged.

This year, competitors in the Kazoo Competition will serve as a walking group in the parade. All performing groups must arrive at the parade starting point no later than 5:00 pm for check-in with Club Council who oversees event logistics and judging of the kazoo bands.
