The Milwaukee County Zoo is celebrating World Elephant Day on Friday with a range of activities.
The celebrations begin at 10:30 a.m. and will continue until 2:30 p.m. There will be an open house at the Elephant Care Center, snacks, artwork and an opportunity to see the elephants up close and person.
The zoo has two African elephants, Ruth and Brittany. Both elephants are 38-years-old.
"They're just so big! I love elephants," 6-year-old Ashlin Lamack said.
