Lantern Walk

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.

Lantern Walk will take place on October 29, 2021, and begins at the base of Tempe Butte (“A” Mountain) with a DJ at 6:30 p.m. The hike up “A” Mountain will begin at 7 p.m. Homecoming Royalty will be crowned at the top of “A” Mountain along with brief remarks from student leaders and Sparky’s lighting up the “A”.
