University Place’s holiday caroling contest is right around the corner.

Groups have until Nov. 19 to register for the 2nd annual “Duck the Halls” Caroling Competition in University Place. UP for Art and Families Unlimited Network are sponsoring the event.

The contest will take place from 1 to 3 p.m. on Dec. 1 in the University Place Market Square, located in front of the new civic and library building. It will be held in conjunction with the city’s tree lighting ceremony.

Competing groups should practice at least two holiday songs with a maximum time limit of eight minutes for judging purposes. Additional songs will be allowed if time permits.

Professional singers are not allowed. Neither is musical accompaniment, instruments or recorded music. Holiday attire is encouraged.

There will be three categories: large group (10+ people), small group (less than 10) and student (up to 18 years of age).

Each group must provide at least five nonperishable food items per member or a $10 check per member made out to Families United Network. Audience members also are encouraged to bring food donations.

    Looks like UP insists on shoving those stupid ducks down everyone’s throats, now making them the focal point of this competition. The ducks have ruined the American flag, now they’re ruining Christmas.
