Jones Beach visitors facing higher fees on kickoff weekend

It's the kickoff to summer but the popular Air Show event at Jones Beach could cost you more cash.

Newsday says because of budget cuts the state parks agency is bumping the fee up to $10 for the Memorial Day weekend show.

For the first time ever, officials also say you are going to have to pay to watch next weekend's dress rehearsal. It will cost $8 a car.
