The Holstein ambassador of the Lebanon Valley is preparing for her birthday on May 16, and she’s planning on celebrating Thursday with a party at “one of her favorite places in the county,” according to a news release from Visit Lebanon Valley.

Lebanon Lilly’s birthday party will be free and open to all children and children at heart from 3 to 5 p.m. Thursday, May 16, at Patches Family Creamery, 201 Fonderwhite Road, Lebanon.

The event will offer guests a free scoop of ice cream while supplies last. In addition to the sweet treat, celebrants can take a spin of the Visit Lebanon Valley prize wheel. No matter where the wheel stops, attendees can take home a sunflower they planted with the help of the Lebanon Valley Conservancy.

At the birthday party, children will also have the opportunity to meet and greet with the Lebanon County Dairy Princess, take a picture with Lebanon Lilly herself, get creative with coloring pages, and more.

Lebanon Lilly is the protagonist of The Adventures of Lebanon Lilly, a children’s book penned by Visit Lebßanon Valley president Jennifer Kuzo. The children’s book will be available to buy for $10 at the event, and proceeds will be donated to the Lebanon County Public Library System.

“With her thirst for adventure, Lebanon Lilly encourages all of us to explore each corner of the county to learn more about the wonderful place that she calls ‘home,'” said Kuzo. “We welcome everyone to join us as we celebrate Lilly’s birthday at Patches Family Creamery, one of her favorite places, and one of mine too!”

Please direct any questions regarding the birthday party to the Visit Lebanon Valley office at 717-277-0100.
