On Saturday, Oct. 26 students, alumni and out-of-town visitors will come downtown when the bars open their doors at 6 a.m. to honor the Tequila Sunrise tradition. Tequila Sunrise is always on NAU's Homecoming weekend and has been a hit with NAU students for the last 25 years on a wide scale. However, the roots of the event go back to 1969.
Since Tequila Sunrise involves heavy drinking from the early hours of the morning, it has inevitably come with debauchery, police presence and even arrests. Here's a look back at previous years' festivities.
