Vulcan’s 114th Birthday Bash

We have partnered with Vulcan Park and Museum to announce Vulcan's 114th Birthday Bash.

It’s time to celebrate Vulcan’s 114th birthday at his annual Birthday Bash! Vulcan may be the world’s largest cast iron statue, but he still needs help blowing out his birthday candles! 

Birmingham is fortunate to have such a historic monument, but the fact that he is surrounded by a beautiful park where you can take your family for a killer outing is a nice bonus! When’s the last time you packed up the kids and headed to Vulcan Park and Museum? There’s plenty to do, great outdoor space, and let’s not forget some of Birmingham’s most stunning views are seen from the open deck. Hitting the Big Guy’s big party might be a perfect way to reacquaint yourself with all this great destination has to offer.
