Spirit Splash, Fireworks and Big Game Conclude Homecoming Week

Spirit Splash will start at noon Friday.

UCF Homecoming, a time for members of the UCF community to come together and take pride in their university, concludes this weekend with Spirit Splash, fireworks and the big football game against Temple, where the Homecoming King and Queen will be crowned.

A reminder that UCF will host a Homecoming fireworks display on Memory Mall at 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14. To accommodate the fireworks, Garage D and a few designated rows of Lot D2 will close at 9 p.m. today, Oct. 13. Vehicles in those areas must be removed by that time, or they will be subject to towing at the owners’ expense.

Additional on-campus parking will be available from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14, at the softball stadium, with shuttle service provided from there to the Health and Public Affairs shuttle stop in lot C1.

Garage D will remain closed after the fireworks until noon Saturday, Oct. 15, when most campus parking areas will open for game day activities.

Free parking for the fireworks display will be available Friday evening in garages C and H.
