Valdosta wants to lock in your love for downtown

Valdosta kicks off Love Downtown campaign

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - With Valentine’s Day approaching, Valdosta city officials are inviting everyone to come out and celebrate love in downtown.

The Valdosta Main Street Department is doing a month long “Love Downtown Valdosta” campaign.

One of the two features of the campaign is a “Love Lock Fence.”

Officials are inviting everyone to come add a lock to signify their unbreakable love for their partner.

“Anybody can come down and participate in this, so it’s couples, friends, you love your dog, bring down a lock and put a lock on for you and your dog, it doesn’t matter. We just want people to come downtown and visit and see what we’re all about," said Main Street Director Ellen Hill.

The other part of the campaign includes a raffle to win $200 to spend at any of the participating downtown businesses.

For every $25 spent downtown, citizens will be entered into a drawing to win.
