Scaled-back party to mark Arizona’s 100 years

With a lack of cash, the party marking Arizona’s birth in two-and-a-half years is expected to be a scaled back, privately financed celebration.

The slumping economy and Arizona’s tight budget has led to a somewhat muted centennial celebration.

Arizona had set aside several million dollars for centennial events. But the Legislature has raided every dollar from the public fund as it battles the budget.

The Arizona Centennial Commission is planning a handful of public events leading up to the centennial celebration.

The state Centennial Commission unveiled its logo and Web site Monday and also announced that the Mormon Tabernacle Choir will perform centennial tribute concerts at US Airways Center in Phoenix on two days in February 2012.
