Fiesta Bowl Block Party: New Year's Eve Set To Rock Tempe

↵

The Fiesta Bowl hosts an annual "Block Party" on Mill Avenue in Tempe. Mill is well known for being ASU's "bar strip," but also hosts numerous events including Arizona Fall Frenzy and the majority of the town's big gatherings (such as the Beer Festival, my personal favorite).

This year, in honor of the Fiesta Bowl matchup between the Connecticut Huskies and the Oklahoma Sooners, the Block Party will be headlined by Jimmy Eat World, Arizona's most popular musical act. Jimmy Eat World has released five full length records, one of which reached platinum status and another that hit gold.

There's a lot of other stuff planned for the evening, including fireworks. The street will be cordoned off so there will be no vehicle access - just a street filled with those who wish to ring in the New Year surrounded by others.

It should be extremely cold tonight for Arizona (the low will be 27 degrees) so definitely bring a coat. I'll be the guy dancing with the lampshade on his head.
