Welcome home, Devils!

Arizona State University's annual Homecoming week ended with a bang Saturday night as ASU Football upset No. 6 Oregon 31-28.

But before ASU went Duck hunting at Sun Devil Stadium, thousands of fans, students, staff, alumni and members of the community enjoyed the Homecoming parade and block party on the Tempe campus.

Colleges and units from across the university enticed block partiers with games, music and — of course — maroon and gold swag. Face painting, salsa music, a tasting bar of the dates that grow on ASU's campuses, an opportunity to get autographs from legendary ASU Football players, selfie stations and giant foam pitchforks were just a sampling of the fun to be had at the free, family-friendly event.

Check out photos from the festivities below, and mark your calendar for Open Door in February for another chance to experience the best that ASU has to offer.
