Fair Food Vendors to Accept Debit & Credit
DES MOINES (AP) -- Iowa State Fair officials now say they want their food vendors to accept debit and credit cards in addition to cash.
The Des Moines Register reports they sent out letters to vendors saying they want to meet the demands of fair-goers who prefer using plastic.
A plan to make the fair cashless by using tickets instead was thrown out in January after public criticism.
This year's fair runs from August 7th - 17th.
