Wet weather couldn't dampen the spirits of the zookeepers at the Lincoln Children's Zoo as they celebrated opening day.

Saturday is the 47th annual opening day and the penguins were all ready for their first appearance of the season.

Zoo officials say they're excited to have the children and families back.

New features this season include flying squirrels, baby pygmy marmosets and baby goats.

The great granddaughter of the zoo's founder says it's great to see his legacy continue.

Zoo officials were ready for any severe weather.

They say staff practice getting guests to safe areas and locking down animals in the event of a storm.

The zoo is designed with concrete enclosures and buildings to keep everyone protected.
