Jersey Shore Landmark 'Lucy The Elephant' To Celebrate 134 Years With Birthday Bash

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A New Jersey landmark is celebrating "her" birthday this weekend, and it's a big one.

Lucy the Elephant, in Margate, celebrates her 134th birthday on Saturday, July 18th with an all-day party on the boardwalk.

The event includes hotdogs, soda, Philly Pretzels, popcorn, cotton candy and birthday cake. There will also be a stilt-walker, a Tarot card reader, a moon bounce, a 40-foot rock wall and a "flying elephant" ride for the kids.

Guests can also pick up a copy of any of Lucy's bedtime storybooks to get signed by the author, Evelyn Johnson, at the event.

Lucy is a six-story tall elephant statue and National Historic Landmark, and the proceeds raised at the event will go towards upkeep and improvements.
