Loveland’s New Love Lock Sculpture

The new love lock sculpture, shaped like a heart with a grid on one side, will be featured at this year’s event. Guests can purchase a love lock on-site from the Visitors Center booth and engrave it, then hang it on the sculpture. Be sure to tag #visitloveland and #lovelandlovelocks when you post your pics!
The annual Loveland Valentine’s Day Group Wedding will be held in Downtown Loveland just prior to the start of the Sweetheart Festival so that couples can enjoy their ceremony, then all the Valentine’s Day festivities that follow. All couples participating in our group wedding will receive special signature Valentine’s Wedding cupcakes, and a gift bag for participating. A photographer will be available at the lagoon to take photos of each couple. You’ll receive a keepsake photo immediately.
