New payment options and a green focus at the 2014 Fall Festival may produce a smoother, more pleasant experience for festivalgoers.

The 93rd Annual West Side Nut Club Fall Festival is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. Monday and come to a close Oct. 11. The festival will feature 137 food vendors, rides, games, shows and two parades.

Festival Chairman Tom Moore said this year will focus more on recycling cans and bottles to keep the streets cleaner.

Another addition may make it easier for attendees to keep track of their money.

“We are going to try to use credit card machines this year. In the past, we have been a purely cash operation,” Moore said.

The credit card machines will be used at ticket/wristband locations on Franklin Street.

Wristbands allow access to unlimited rides for one day and are available for pre-purchase at various locations.

“This year, in addition to Old National Bank, we are also using the five Schnuck’s locations to presell the wristband vouchers,” Moore said.

Wristbands cost $20, while pre-sell wristbands sell for $18.

Also new this year is the official Fall Festival website, which was created by Desktop Doctors. It provides information about the event and includes a countdown.
