Omaha, Nebraska (KMTV)-Omaha’s Henry Dolly Zoo & Aquarium celebrated its milestone on Sunday with its 1 millionth visitor in 2021.

According to the zoo, the millionth visitor this year was a woman named Jenny Atkinson from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, with her family.

Atkinson passed through the gate on Sunday at 10:35 am. Atkinson and her family were greeted by a “tunnel” of zoo staff and zoo animal ambassadors.

The family also received zoo membership, gift baskets, ride tickets, Lozier Giant Screen Theater tickets, and a golf cart tour with an encounter with a giraffe.

A zoo spokesman said the facility did not reach 1 million visitors in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, but usually welcomes the 1 millionth visitor in mid-July each year.

A zoo spokeswoman said, “The zoo is moving at a normal pace, making COVID and all of us very happy after 2020.”
