Lucy the Elephant in Margate

Lucy turns 138 this year, and you're invited to celebrate.

In honor of both the 138th birthday of Lucy The Elephant and the 50th anniversary of the Save Lucy Committee (you know you are getting old when the committee to save you has been around for half a century), there will be a “Back to the Beginning” party from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday July 20 at the site of Lucy the Elephant in Margate.

The all-day celebration will include a trackless train ride, mini golf, stilt walkers, a bungee run, water slide, a rock wall, food and more. Free parking with shuttle service will be located at the corner of Benson and Monmouth avenues in Margate. Shuttles depart every 15 minutes.
