The Tiger Town events that were planned to be held in downtown Columbia this fall to correspond with two home football games have been canceled due to a lack of funding. In a press release, head organizer Greg Steinhoff said it took them substantially more time to define the event, leaving less time to sell the event to potential donators. He said that despite the hard work by the organizers they came up short of the financial commitments necessary to stage the event.
