One of Campbell's residents celebrated his birthday on Saturday with an open house and party.

Gus the Galapagos Tortoise turned 28 on Aug. 3 and his owner, Campbell resident Tony Burtz wanted to celebrate the turtle's "hatch day" with the rest of his community.

Along with turtle feedings, turtle rids and turtle weight guessing, Saturday's festivities also included a turtle race.

Five hatchlings made up of Aldabra, Galapagos, Sulcata and Leopard tortoises were placed inside a circle and given a number. Birthday party goers then chose a winning number and watched as the turtles scurried toward the finish line.
