Jul 28, 2014

A mulligan. A do-over. A reprise. A redux. An encore. Whatever you want to call it, for the first time ever, the Dallas Zoo is offering a second summer Dollar Day. While more than 12,000 guests braved unusual, heavy rainstorms to attend the July Dollar Day, many more couldn’t make it. (Maybe they weren’t experienced swimmers?)

So Tuesday, Aug. 19, the zoo will offer a Dollar Day Do-Over. Please help us spread the word!
