SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The city of Ogden doesn't have any money in its budget for a First Night celebration.
The city didn't have the money last year either, but a coalition of business, citizens and private donors stepped in at the last minute to save First Night.
But this year, they say they're too financially or otherwise exhausted to do it again.
Other organizations are stepping up with traditional New Year's Eve celebrations, but these feature alcohol -- unlike the dry First Night observance.
One of those will be a fund-raiser hosted by the Union Station Foundation. It'll feature a silent auction, big band dancing, a buffet, a cash bar and champagne at midnight.
Other events include a multi-faith concert at the Ogden LDS Temple and the PRCA Wilderness Rodeo finals at the Weber County Fairgrounds.
