Hurray for Homecoming fun

October 31, 2021

ASU celebrates with parade, music, hands-on activities for the family — and plenty of Halloween touches

Homecoming was back in a big way this weekend in Tempe, when Sun Devils celebrated both school spirit and Halloween spookiness.

Friday night's traditional Lantern Walk kicked things off, and on Saturday, there were enough floats, clubs and groups to fill a nearly hourlong parade along University Drive. Then at the Homecoming Block Party, families, students and alumni enjoyed fun, educational activities at booths featuring ASU schools and departments — from science activities to sweet treats to playing games for prizes.

And although the Sun Devils fell to Washington State 34-21 at the football game after the block party, spirits were still high in the stands as students cheered on their team.
