May showers, it turns out, mean bigger flows over Shoshone Falls.

And that’s enabled Shoshone Falls after Dark to return for the second time this spring.

Shoshones Falls at Twin Falls will be lit up June 3-12. And the flows will reach about 1,000 cubic feet per second versus the 300 cubic feet per second flows it attained in May. That means the lights will be brighter and there will be water on the right side of the fall.

“This year’s water levels made annual flows uncertain. We are incredibly grateful for Idaho Power’s partnership earlier in May and that we’ll be able to feature additional nights in June,” said Melissa Barry, executive director of Southern Idaho Tourism.

This year's lights at Shoshone Falls After Dark are comprised of a newer and more capable model of LED, which allows for better color coverage, efficiency, and ability to easily program color changes. The presenters have partnered with professional lighting artist David Henry to immerse visitors in lights, music and the natural beauty of Shoshone Falls.

Renowned as the "Niagara of the West," Shoshone Falls stands 212 feet tall--36 feet higher than Niagara Falls. The light show is made possible by Southern Idaho Tourism with the help of Idaho Central Credit Union, Idaho Power and the City of Twin Falls.

"The rainbow falls have become a favorite of visitors and locals," said Barry. "This May's preview nights with lower water levels sold out quickly, so we expect a lot of interest with bigger flows."

Viewers may view the falls and lights from dusk until 11 p.m. each night. A food vendor will have drinks and snacks on hand. The event is ticketed to keep crowds at reasonable levels. To purchase tickets, visit
