Numerous Fat Tuesday celebrations are scheduled to take place in downtown Austin tonight. The Mardi Gras festivities will cause Sixth Street to be shut down for through passage between Brazos Street and Interstate 35.
Fifth Street and Seventh Street will also be closed for tonight’s celebrations. The streets will be shut between 9 p.m. on Tuesday night and 5 a.m. on Wednesday morning. Austin Police have also deemed tonight as a “No Refusal” night.
Over the weekend, police arrested several party goers for suspected drunk driving offenses in Austin. It is important to designate a driver if you plan on attending Fat Tuesday celebrations tonight. To learn more about no refusal dates, please visit www.kvue.com today.
The Austin carpet cleaners of WOW Total Cleaning hope that everyone stays safe while celebrating the Fat Tuesday holiday.
