ARLINGTON - A fireworks extravaganza will light up The University of Texas at Arlington sky following the MavsMeet After-Party Friday, Aug. 21, on the Central Library Mall.

The fireworks are scheduled to go off about 9:15 p.m. The public may view the show from the library mall or the east side of Texas Hall.

Fireworks fans are encouraged to park in the north end of Lot 47, Lot F-13 or any other student lots except for F-10 and lots 49, 50, 51 and 52.

Parking lot F-10, which is near Pickard Hall, will be closed all day for the fireworks display. Lots 49, 50, 51 and 52 will be reserved for Dallas Cowboys' employees' parking for that night's pre-season match with the Tennessee Titans.

See this map of the university for parking locations.

The MavsMeet After-Party follows the annual MavsMeet New Student Convocation.
