FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota State Fair is raising some admission prices this year.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports Wednesday (http://bit.ly/pDzjoC ) that the Fair has raised its gate admission prices by a dollar to $12 for an adult ticket. But the biggest hike is in kids' ticket prices, which jumped from $2 to $10.

A Fair spokeswoman says the price hike is meant to cover building improvements and maintenance at the Fairgrounds. The price of advance tickets stayed the same as last year, at $9. The cost of parking in a fairground lot is also up by $1, to $12.

The Minnesota State Fair runs from Aug. 25 to Sept. 5.
