“We want everyone to have a good time, but at the same time, do it responsibly,” Brownsville police spokeswoman Abril Luna said. “If you know you're going to be consuming alcoholic beverages, make sure that you have a designated driver."

Festival officials say they expect 60 thousand people will partake in the fun over the next three days.
