LOVE Letters Are Coming to Yorktown!

Friday, November 8, 2019

Yorktown is excited to host Virginia Tourism’s life-sized LOVE artwork from Nov. 8 to Nov. 17 at Riverwalk Landing as part of a state and local partnership to promote tourism in the Commonwealth.

LOVE will soon be in the air in Yorktown! The artwork, which is 16 feet long and more than six feet high, is an extension of the iconic "Virginia is for Lovers" brand, which in 2019 is celebrating 50 years since its inception. The LOVE letters will be located in the grassy area between the Freight Shed and Riverwalk Restaurant with the beautiful York River as the backdrop for Yorktown’s inaugural Maritime Market as well as the annual Harvest Festival. Both are held in conjunction with the 2019 Commemoration, American Evolution.
