Bring the family out for a fun filled night in The American Dream City at the Maverick Stadium!

UT Arlington's 35th annual Bed Races event will kick off this Wednesday, October 7 at 7 p.m. at Maverick Stadium, located at 1307 W. Mitchell St, Arlington, TX 76013.

This is one of the "longest running" traditions for UTA, as it celebrates the opening of Maverick Stadium back in 1980.

Teams of students in creative costumes will race beds on wheels down a forty yard line. There are five different brackets, including the fastest in Women's Division and Most Spirited Individuals (five winners who are judged upon creativity, enthusiasm, attire). The team with the best time wins.

The admission to this event is free and open to the campus and Arlington community. There will be fun and games going on at halftime for the entire community to join.

Teams of five can register for the bed races by visiting: http://www.uta.edu/excel/events/bed-races/
