EL PASO — 'Les bon temps' were not 'roulez'-ing for El Paso Police overnight as they broke up several fights at both the Union Plaza and Cincinnati Entertainment District Mardi Gras celebrations.
Thousands attended both events and most were out to have a good time.
"I'm having so much fun," said one party-goer, who didn't want to tell us her name. "This is my first Mardi Gras being of age".
Employees at bars near Cincinnati cleaned until about 6 a.m., with street sweepers following to make sure the area was clean.
