Lucy’s 140th Birthday Celebration
July 17, 2021
The Save Lucy Committee announced plans for Lucy’s 140th birthday celebration. Everyone remembers “National Lampoon’s Vacation” movie series…well, we are presenting NATIONAL LANDMARK’S SUMMER VACATION AT LUCY! The event will be held on Saturday, July 17th from 10am to 8pm (rain date is Sunday, July 19th)
“After last year’s scaled down event due to the pandemic, we are ready to celebrate Lucy’s 140th milestone birthday in grand fashion”, said Lucy Executive Director, Rich Helfant. By popular demand, we are bringing back the trackless train ride this year along with new and exciting rides, games, and inflatables. Another party favorite making a comeback this year is the 9-hole miniature golf course. Jersey shore treats such as hot dogs, funnel cakes, French fries, and slushies will be available throughout the day. And of course, no party at Lucy would be complete without Mackie, the Stiltwalker! Tours will be conducted inside Lucy every 45 minutes throughout the day, and there will be birthday cake at 3pm (while supplies last).
This year’s collectible birthday t-shirt will resemble the movie poster from those famous National Lampoon movies of the 1980’sAll proceeds from the 10-hour fund raiser will go toward Lucy’s re-surfacing project slated to begin in October 2021.
This year’s event is sponsored in part by OceanFirst Bank and Westfield Architects and Preservation Consultants.
