CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Lulu, the Cincinnati Zoo's youngest Maasai giraffe, is turning 1 on October 12.

In honor of her 1st birthday, the Zoo is holding a giraffe birthday party on Friday, October 11, at 10:30 a.m. Guests are invited to come see Lulu, enjoy a giraffe birthday cake and sign Lulu's 1st birthday card.

To recognize her historical birth, the Zoo will be live-tweeting the birthday preparations and party using hashtag #LuluTurnsOne.

"As one the Cincinnati Zoo's many "sweet-hearts", we are excited to make Lulu's first birthday a community party," said Thane Maynard, Executive Director of the Cincinnati Zoo."Visitors can come out Friday, October 11, thru Sunday, October 13, and sign her card, at Giraffe Ridge, and say 'hi' to our birthday girl!"

Fans of the zoo helped name Lulu a year ago by voting online. She is a fan favorite and has been since the beginning. 

Guests can sign a card and see Lulu eating birthday cake, concocted by the zoo's animal nutritionist. 

The celebration starts at 10:30 on Friday and will run through the day Sunday.
