PERRY, Ga. (AP) -- Tickets for midway rides at the Georgia National Fair in Perry will increase in the wake of state budget cuts.

The Telegraph reports that state funding for the Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter was cut by 11 percent this year and 25 percent in fiscal 2014.

The board overseeing fair voted Wednesday to increase the price of tickets for midway rides.

Among tickets that will see a price increase are the armbands, which will go from $16 to $20 on the opening and closing days and Oct. 7-10.

The change comes shortly after a decision in September to raise gate prices from $8 to $10 for this year's fair, which runs Oct. 3-13.
