Rain drowning out struggling small businesses in San Antonio

San Antonio – Outdoor venues that depend on good summer weather for their financial peak are struggling to stay afloat in San Antonio, due to all the rain that’s fallen so far this year.

James Kinney, with Splashtown, said all the rain this month has impacted their attendance.

“This week, we’ve been running at maybe a quarter of the attendance that we should during the week,” he said.

The Fourth of July weekend was not any better. May was poor, June was better and then July hit. His business struggled to reopen following the damage from the February storm.

Kinney said he was hopeful summer would boost their business.

“This has been a struggle. And 2019 wasn’t exactly good weather either. And then 2020 happened, and now we’re on this roller coaster, so to speak, of weather this year,” Kinney said.

Hope Roth, with the San Antonio Zoo, said there’s still a lot of indoor activities available for those who visit the zoo during a rainy day.
