Gusts of powdered color exploded in the air as nearly 100 Northwestern students engaged in Northwestern Homecoming’s first-ever charity paint fight, The Color ROAR, on Sunday.

Primal drums rumbled as the rhythm and dance group Boomshaka counted down for the fight to start on Lakefront Field. The 2012 Homecoming Court led the NU Fight Song before the activities began.

Homecoming hosted The Color ROAR to kick off this year’s Homecoming Week. Students who registered were given powdered paint packets to throw at one another during the fight.
