Despite triple digit temperatures, the second largest crowd in Dallas Zoo history -- 28,000 people -- showed up for Dollar Day.
Both humans and the animals were on display at the Dallas Zoo Thursday for yet another Dollar Day.
For those unaware, the Dollar Day lets visitors get into the Dallas Zoo for one dollar each -- a pretty hefty discount for the family. Once inside, hot dogs and other items are offered for just a buck as well.
Traffic is always tough on I-35E for these events, so organizers are encouraging folks to use the DART Red Line to get to the Dallas Zoo stop. DART says they'll have extra trains and cars available to keep up with the crowds.
A side bonus of taking the DART? You won't have to pay for Dallas Zoo parking -- which is seven times what you'd pay to get in today at $7 per car. Oh, and the parking lots are already full according to the Dallas Zoo website.
