DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Despite soggy conditions, a flood of families made their way to the Dallas Zoo for dollar day.

The bi-annual dollar day endured a periodic downpour or two.  However, zoo visitors like Alicia Medrano and her family decided to soak it in, despite the summer soaking coming from the sky.

“We’re here, it doesn’t matter, raining or not,” she said. “I just wanted to see the animals.”

By noon on Thursday, despite the rain, seven thousand had shown up to the zoo. But last year, 30-thousand visitors attended the zoo’s dollar day.  The final attendance for the rain drenched dollar day was about 12,000.

While the drenching may have helped decrease the dollar day turnout, for those who showed up, fewer meant better.

“It won’t ruin our day, its just a little rain,” said one zoo visitor.

“Yeah, it is better, I’d rather be wet in the rain and chilly, versus sweaty, and you know,” said Kosha Jayaswal.

Even the animals seemed to enjoy a break from the North Texas heat.

The Dallas Zoo holds two dollar day events every year.  The next one happens in November.
