Happy Birthday, Old Girl! Lucy Celebrates Her 134th on Saturday
Happy Birthday to South Jersey's official National Historic Landmark! Lucy the Elephant celebrates her 134th birthday this Saturday from 10a-8p in Margate.
It should be quite a weekend for Lucy, who first celebrated in 1881, when James Garfield was the President of the United States.
A large crowd of families and admires are expected to help Lucy celebrate, with a party featuring a water slide, a rock wall, a moon bounce and carnival games, a stilt walker and lots of snacks and food, and, of course, birthday cake.
Lucy the Elephant gets about 130,000 visitors a year at her home on Atlantic Avenue overlooking the ocean in Margate. Lucy stands over six stories high and weighs over 90 tons.
Lucy is the No. 1 non-gaming attraction in the Atlantic City area according to The Atlantic City City Convention and Visitors Authority.
