Put on your orange and blue! Thousands of people will be packing into UTEP'S campus for Minerpalooza, the biggest back-to-school-bash of the year.
This Friday, more than 20,000 people are expected to show up. The festivities kick off at 6 and end at midnight. One of the highlights is the pep rally, which starts at 7.
"Not only is this for UTEP community - it's a family affair," said Shannon Osborne, event organizer. "So if you have family here who wants to stay for labor day weekend, this is the event to be at!"
Minerpalooza is free and open to the public.
