Many youngsters brought their dads to the zoo to ring in Father's Day weekend.
This afternoon all dads at the Amarillo Zoo got a free root beer float.
We talked with one about why he spent today with the animals, and also caught up with a daughter with a quick message.
Chad Smith says, "well, I think its a great thing for kids to get that first hand experience seeing animals, and kinda just knowing the nature of nature.
Phoebe Duran says, Happy Fathers Day!"
The zoo offers free floats for dads on Fathers Day weekend every year.
