About this Article

There are plenty of behind the scenes changes taking shape for this year's Naperville Exchange Club Ribfest, but organizers say the one that will be most apparent to guests is how they get their beer. Responding to last year's request by Mayor and Liquor Commissioner George Pradel, Ribfest Chairman Marty Walker said a new system has been implemented to substitute tickets for cash for all liquor sales at the four-day fest that runs July 3-7 in Knoch Park near downtown Naperville.
