The lighting of the A is as storied of a tradition as painting it is. When the latter got cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns, many worried that the lighting would be too. Luckily, though, that isn't the case.

Colorado State University will light up the A tat 7:00 p.m. Friday (Oct. 2) to ring in homecoming weekend, and the university encourages alums young and old to stop by and watch the action.

The lighting is put on in part by Rhythm EFX Productions, and if you miss it happening live, a replay will be posted online at 8:00 p.m.
