DURHAM - About half a dozen students were arrested and at least two were rushed to the hospital during Cinco de Mayo celebrations at UNH.
Thousands of students descended upon the downtown area and onto Garrison Avenue for celebrations.
UNH Police Chief Paul Dean said there were 'no major incidents', and that students had been cooperative throughout the day.
Dean said Cinco de Mayo festivities have only become more popular over the past few years.
Students told NH1 News that the large police presence helped to keep things in control. It was a very different scene from a few years ago.
"It’s a lot more fun," Nikki Kamischian said. "It’s calm, and more collected. Everyone is just here to have a good time, that’s all.”
Crowds began to disperse at sundown.
