Each application shall state the purposes for which the proceeds of the event will be used. The application shall be upon a form prescribed and furnished by the director and shall be filed with the director in duplicate. Each application shall be accompanied by a permit fee of $25 for each day for which the permit is issued, which fee shall be paid by a certified or cashier's check of a bank within this state, United States post office money order or cash in the full amount thereof.

The boundaries of such special event shall be clearly marked by signs, a posted map or other means which reasonably identify the area in which alcoholic liquor may be possessed or consumed at such special event.
(2) Drinking establishments that are immediately adjacent to, or located within the licensed premises of a special event, for which a temporary permit has been issued and the consumption of alcoholic liquor on public property has been approved, may request that the drinking establishment's licensed premises be extended into and made a part of the licensed premises of the special event for the duration of the temporary permit issued for such special event.
