Lantern Walk remains one of ASU's oldest and most treasured traditions. It was first celebrated in 1917. Each year students, alumni, faculty, staff and friends climb to the top of A Mountain carrying lanterns to light up Tempe, following in the footsteps of their Sun Devil ancestors.
At Lantern Walk, Sun Devils climb to the top of “A” Mountain where the Homecoming Royalty are announced. The event takes place each year on the Friday night before the Homecoming game.
