(Des Moines) Officials would like to change the way people are paying for food and drinks at the Iowa State Fair.
Fair spokesperson Lori Chappell told the Des Moines Register that patrons will no longer buy items with cash.
She said instead they will purchase tickets at about 50-spots scattered around the fairgrounds and pay for food and beverages with those tickets. Each ticket will cost .50 cents.
Chappell says the new system will be more secure and make it quicker to buy food because vendors won’t have to make change.
The fair switched to an all ticket system at the Grandstand several years ago.
