Lucy's 133rd Birthday Party

Lucy the Elephant, our region’s National Historic Landmark, will celebrate her birthday on Saturday, July 19th. The carnival-like event will begin at 10am and continue throughout the day until 8pm.

Music, food, and fun will be the order of the day as we celebrate 133 years of the World’s Largest Elephant. Everyone’s favorite stilt walker, MACKIE, will be on hand to greet Lucy’s friends and help celebrate her special day. New this year, Lucy will have a carnival Midway complete with games of chance and prizes.  No birthday party would be complete without hotdogs, soda, Philly Pretzels, popcorn, cotton candy, snow cones, peanuts, and of course, birthday cake. Also new this year, we have added roasted fresh Jersey corn on the cob…YUM! Slide down the Big Kahuna water slide, bounce in the Birthday Cake Moon Bounce, take a chance in the dunk tank, or climb the new 40’ rock wall.

Lucy, her staff, and volunteers will all be sporting mustaches and so can you. We have a Mustache tent set up where Lucy’s friends can get their own carnival “stache”. Our annual collectible Lucy Birthday t-shirt will be available in limited quantities whiles supplies last. Evelyn Johnson of Cape May Court House, author of Lucy’s official bedtime storybooks, will be on hand to sign copies of her highly acclaimed children’s books from 10am to 4pm.

Tours through the World’s Largest Elephant will be offered every half-hour. Revenue generated from sales throughout the birthday celebration will help offset operating costs and capital improvements to our National Historic Landmark.  Satellite parking is available at Union Avenue School playground. Entrance to the playground is located on Vendome Avenue between Winchester and Monmouth Avenues. A complimentary shuttle, furnished by the Atlantic City Jitney Association, will also be running every 15 minutes between the playground and Lucy from 10am to 8pm.

Stop by and say Happy Birthday to Lucy. “Like” Lucy on Facebook… and now on Twitter too. Don’t miss Lucy’s annual birthday bash. See you on the Midway!

Light Up New Jersey: Video Coverage

What an elephantastic time!  Click on the image below to watch video coverage of the Light Up New Jersey event which took place here at Lucy on October 29, 2013.  A special thank you to everybody who helped make this event a success as we remember Hurricane Sandy which struck the Jersey Shore one year ago.  We are only here today because of your support.  Because of you, we are "stronger than the storm".

Hurricane Sandy

The 1-year Anniversary

It’s hard to believe that a year has passed since the wrath of Hurricane Sandy hit the Jersey coast.  As we approach the one year anniversary of Sandy, we cannot help but reflect on the outpouring of strength and support that you have given to Lucy.  Your acts of kindness; economic, physical, and emotional; have been humbling and at times overwhelming.  In the two weeks following the storm, more than 266,000 people talked about Lucy on Facebook.  Lucy stood for many as a beacon of hope throughout this horrific and unprecedented storm.

To commemorate this historic event, the stations of Townsquare Media have joined forces with sites throughout the state as they “Light Up New Jersey”.  On Tuesday, October 29th, Lite Rock 96.9 WFPG will be broadcasting live from Lucy the Elephant.  People are invited to attend the festivities at Lucy from 5 to 7pm.  A commemorative “Stronger than the Storm” flashlight is being offered on Lucy’s website,, and at her gift shop.  At 6:30pm, all Town Square Media stations throughout the state will play the “Stronger than the Storm” song, when people will turn on their flashlights in a “moment of light”.   In addition to the flashlights, Lucy will be lighted for the night by Earl Girls Theatrical Lighting, and a skydiver will land on the beach in front of Lucy during the event, courtesy of FreeFall  Adventures of Williamstown, NJ.  

We hope you will join with us as we “Light Up New Jersey” by purchasing your own commemorative “Stronger Than The Storm” keychain flashlight.  Click here to order your flashlight right now!
