Ritley: The article clearly states the tickets don't expire and can be used the next year
The Larch: pute kisses like a man: FrancoFile: Sybarite: How are you supposed to know in advance how much deep fried crap you can shovel down your gullet until explosive diarrhea sets in? That number can vary vastly over a lifetime.Never fear. There will be ticket purchase booths scattered everywhere.Lots of wine & beer festivals do the same thing.I'm sure there's a legal reason for this. But us there a business reason? Are sales better or worse with tickets?I'm sure there are two very good reasons: first, state fairs are often very badly managed by people who normally would have no business running a lemonade stand much less a multi-million dollar festival. Second, this is a way to make sure that none of the vendors misrepresent their sales and cheat the the fair out of their percentage of the take.It will almost certainly cost more and reduce overall revenue, but if the people who make the decisions about this type of thing perceive that it provides a personal advantage to themselves, it will continue.
