The LOVE letters arrive in Merchants Square.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the Virginia Tourism Corporation has brought its over sized LOVE artwork back to Colonial Williamsburg’s Merchants Square! The artwork, which is 16 feet long and more than six feet high, is part of the “Virginia is for Lovers” campaign designed to promote family-friendly vacation experiences in Virginia. Visitors can see the LOVE on display in Merchants Square on Duke of Gloucester Street until Thursday, Feb. 18.

Visitors are encouraged to take a picture with the LOVE artwork and share it on Facebook, Instagram and/or Twitter using the hashtags #loveinmsq and #LoveVA. Participants will be entered to win a $150 gift certificate to the Merchants Square restaurant of their choice. The winner will be notified on Monday, Feb. 22. For more information, visit
