(Before the parade)
The Kazoo Band Competition is a fun and unique way to celebrate the Homecoming spirit. Groups will perform a one-minute song on the ever-popular instrument, the kazoo! Songs should relate to the Homecoming theme, “Cirque du Appalachian” 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 p.m. for check-in.
- The Kazoo routine for the judges may be no longer than 1 minute. Routines will be timed.
- Kazoos are provided in the Campus Activities Office in 244 Plemmons Student Union.

- Fraternities & Sororities will vie for 1st, 2nd, 3rd place. Likewise, Clubs, Hall Councils and Department Affiliated Organizations will compete in their own categories for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
