BEAUMONT — Sunday, fair-goers at the YMBL South Texas State Fair were admitted free if they brought an empty or full six‑pack of Coca-Cola or Dr. Pepper product cans. The Fair will sell and donate the cans to raise money for Boys' Haven.

Patrons with cans are eligible to purchase a wristband for $20.00 where as those without cans may purchase carnival wristbands for $35.00. This wristband permits them to ride the carnival rides on an unlimited basis.

Fair visitors without cans pay regular entry price and regular wristband or individual ride prices.
