Iowa State Fair abandons cashless food plan | The Des Moines Register

The Iowa State Fair board gave the people what they wanted Thursday when it shelved plans for a cashless system for food and one attraction at the 2014 fair.

The move came two days after fair officials announced cash would no longer be accepted at food concessions or the Giant Slide. Fairgoers would instead have to buy 50-cent tickets online or at more than 150 fairgrounds locations.

The backlash against the plan was immediate. People flooded social media with howls of protest, and some threatened to boycott the fair. On Wednesday, Gov. Terry Branstad weighed in by suggesting the fair board listen to people’s concerns.
