Paying with debit cards is becoming a familiar routine with most of us, and the fair was trying to accommodate that this year.
It had two ATM’s available for fair-goers in the Veteran’s Building and under the Grand Stands.
“We have several people in the office every day asking where they’re at, ” says Fair Board Secretary Doug Guinsler.
Guinsler says because you needed cash for food, games, rides, and souvenirs, the Fair Board wanted to make it easily available in this day and age.
“If they can get their ATM here, that will keep them at the fair longer, and they’ll spend a little more money, ” says Guinsler.
He says the Fair Board is thinking of adding an additional ATM somewhere along the Midway next year.
Guinsler says the ATM’s were made possible by Community Bank.
