bars and clubs are ready to ring in 2016. darkhorse tavern is just one spot gearing up for tonight. and in downtown el paso. hundreds are expected to turn out to celebrate the new year. preparations are underway right now for tonight’s celebrations. i’m here at union plaza where local bars and clubs are ready to ring in 2016. i’m. standing outside the plaza where you’ll find people walking in and out of spots. and if you look closely, you’ll find the garden’s led ball hoisted on a crane and ready for the big countdown. the ball has more than 46-thousand led lights it’s. programmed by a computer–and as you just saw it’s hoisted on a crane. it’s one of the only places you’ll find a new york times square style ball drop in el paso. the manager here at the garden tells me they’ve been preparing for this celebration since last month. today they’ve been busy setting up tables, chairs drinks and of course, the champagne: “put verbatim here” as owen said, celebrations are just getting started. we’ll be here all night. live in union plaza, jo, abc7. ashlie rodriguez is hard at work
