DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) A very rainy Dollar Day in July has the Dallas Zoo offering a second summer Dollar Day for the first time ever.

12,000 visitors braved the heavy rain but many thousands more didn’t bother.  They’ll have another chance on Tuesday, August 19th from 9am to 5pm.

That means it’s $1 to get in and drinks, hot dogs and ice cream are $1.

The Dallas Zoo says Dollar Days are its way of showing its appreciation to the community for its support throughout the year.

Guests are strongly urged to take the DART Red Line straight to the zoo entrance to avoid the traffic and $8 parking.
