HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) _ The treats, rides and entertainment are back, as the Kansas State Fair opens its 100th annual fair.

The fair begins on Friday in Hutchinson.

For the first time in four years, admission prices have gone up, with a regular adult ticket going from $8 to $10.

Fair general manager Denny Stoecklein says the fair doesn't get outside support and needed to raise prices because expenses have increased. He noted the state is nearly $1.5 million behind in payments it is supposed to make to maintain the fairgrounds and its building.
