This year’s Red Rose Festival will feature something extra for adults.
Lancaster City Council voted 6-1 at its Tuesday, April 10, meeting to approve a resolution that permits the sale and consumption of beer at the upcoming festival on May 18 and 19.
Councilwoman Linda Blackmon-Brace cast the dissenting vote.
In November 2011, council revised an existing ordinance, to allow beer and wine to be sold at city-sponsored functions. However, a vendor must apply and be approved for each event.
