UCF's Student Government Association announced Monday the return of two free student nights for Light Up UCF, an annual winter-holiday event that takes place outside the CFE Arena.

Students with tickets will be able to enjoy free food, carnival rides, ice skating and more for free on Nov. 12 and Nov. 18 from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. Additionally, SGA is offering free limited-edition beanies to the first 150 people in attendance, according to its Facebook page. It also encourages suggested toy donations that will benefit Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

Advanced ticket distribution will take place Nov. 10 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Student Union and on Nov. 16 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. in front of the CFE Arena.

Other Light Up UCF attractions that will be free for students include a photo booth, a screening of the movie Elf and horse-drawn carriage rides.

Light Up UCF will be open to the general public every night starting Nov. 13 until Jan. 3.
