The Watauga County Democratic Party’s famous Kazoo Band will perform again this year in the Boone July Fourth Parade celebration. The Kazoo Band has been offering virtually the only live music in the parade for many years, performing patriotic and traditional pieces of Americana. Kazoo Band leader Marjory Holder will have kazoos enough for everyone who wants to join the band. No training or musical ability is required. If you can hum, you can play the kazoo.
The Boone July Fourth parade will step off at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, July 4, from the Watauga County Human Services parking lot on West King Street. All riders must be on the float by 10:30 a.m. The parade will conclude at Legends parking lot on Hardin Street, though the float will return riders to the Human Services parking lot after the parade.
Kazoo Band members are urged to wear their Watauga Democratic Party T-shirts or any combination of red, white, and blue. A sun hat and sun screen is also recommended. There will be water available on the float.
