SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Price changes are in store when the Oregon State Fair opens the gates on Friday.

Some prices are up, others are down.

Parking won’t be free anymore. The Statesman Journal reports it’ll now cost $5 to stow a vehicle.

But ticket prices are dropping, from $11 per person to $8. Fairgoers who plan ahead can get an additional $2 off by buying their tickets in advance.

There will also be free seats available for the fair’s concerts and live performances.

The changes follow a decision by the state Legislature to create a public corporation to manage the fair. It was previously a money-losing part of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.
