UTICA, N.Y - It was a rainy Mother's day at the Utica Zoo. But the rainy weather didn't stop many families from treating mom to a good time.
The Utica Zoo had a special admission special allowing mothers to enter for free.
"I remember going to the zoo when I was a kid and its always an exciting experience and to see my son happy is the best mothers day gift," said Cathy Bowsher.
Because of the weather, the Zoo had a number of indoor activities going on throughout the zoo.
Zoo officials said the turnout was much higher than expected.
