The messiest event on the Brock University calendar is on for Friday, Sept. 21.
The annual Homecoming Grape Stomp takes place from noon to 1:30 p.m. at Brock’s Jubilee Court, where teams of students will compete for prizes by dressing up in costumes and stomping away on a metric tonne of Concord grapes.
A group of children from the Rosalind Blauer Centre for Child Care on the Brock campus will get the party started by stomping their own piles of grapes at noon.
Around 700 Brock students will then get their chance to take part in the messy tradition, which has been ranked No. 2 out of the top Canadian university traditions by University Affairs Magazine.
The Grape Stomp event will also feature live music and a free barbecue.
