Lucy the Elephant Celebrates Her 135th Birthday Saturday
Happy Birthday to South Jersey's official National Historic Landmark! Lucy the Elephant celebrates her 135th birthday from 10am-8pm this Saturday in Margate.
Always topical, Saturday's party has a "Lucy for President" theme, and, you have to admit, the old girl is way more popular than her two human competitors!
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 Lucy lovers are expected, with this year's party featuring a 9-hole miniature golf course, a photo “voting” booth, water slide, rock wall, moon bounce, carnival games, 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.
