More than $150,000 deposited onto preloaded "cashless cards" at the Colorado State Fair last year went unused and can now be refunded, organizers said.

Last year, fair-goers were able to buy snacks, drinks and tickets at the Pueblo fairgrounds with a pre-loaded smart card. This year, it's back to cash.

The cashless system, which debuted last year, won't be back, organizers said.

Anyone who loaded money onto a card last year can obtain their unspent funds at the refund office, located at the Palace of Agriculture on the fairgrounds in Pueblo.

The refund office is open every day of the Fair from noon to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Labor Day.

Fair visitors have until 7 p.m. on Sept. 1 to get their refund.
