It may be the Dog Days of August, but you wouldn't know it this year. The temps are a cool 75 to 80! I would grab umbrella, as it seems that we are having a few pop up showers.
So excited to see Dickerson Park Zoo's $1.00 day, Saturday, that is a $1 for both Adults and Kiddos!
There is lots to do In and Around Springfield, MO this weekend. Have a GREAT TIME everyone!
