The chamber of commerce voted to drop the events because they don't align with its mission, which is to support businesses.

Cool Desert Nights has been a staple for years and River of Fire for 30+. Both events take a huge amount of man-power and volunteers, plus the expense adds to the problem.

We want to thank the Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce for the many years of commitment to these events.  Most likely another company/organization will step up and take them over and we'll see the show over the river.
