KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -
A big happy birthday to Nikita.
One of the Kansas City Zoo's biggest attractions turned 7 Saturday and the public helped him celebrate the big day.
The zoo held a party at the Polar Bear Passage beginning at 10 a.m. and going until 2 p.m. At two separate times visitors could watch him devour a delicious giant cupcake made of all his favorite treats from Mema's Bakery.
Kids also helped make Nikita a special birthday card.
