Pence Signs Bill Allowing Alcohol Sales at State Fair

Governor Pence has signed legislation allowing the sale of alcohol at the Indiana State Fair.

Alcohol sales have been banned at the fair for 67-years.

It will still be up to the fair commission to allow sales.

State fair spokesman Andy Klotz telles the a Indianapolis Star alcohol sales will allow the fair to promote Indiana's growing wine and craft beer industries.

Opponents have expressed fears that alcohol sales will hurt the fair's family-friendly atmosphere.

Before Pence signed the law, Indiana and North Carolina were the only states not allowing alcohol sales for on-site consumption at their state fairs.
