A week of Homecoming activities culminated on Saturday as the Arizona State University community came together to particpate in the annual Homecoming Parade and Block Party.

During the parade, spectators were treated to appearances by Tempe Mayor Corey Woods, Homecoming royalty, Sparky, ASU clubs and more. At the block party, attendees could interact with a variety of booths and exhibits — including face painting, science demonstrations, games and animal meet and greets.

Following the parade and block party, ASU went up against Washington State for the Homecoming Game and walked away with a 38-27 victory.
