We’ve already let you in on Virginia’s statewide celebration of the “Virginia is for Lovers” slogan’s fiftieth birthday. Now, we’re excited to announce that Cape Charles’ official kick off is right around the corner!
Cape Charles is hosting a 50-day “Summer of Love” celebration that starts July 6th and runs through August 24th. What’s in store? Lots! Plan to join us at a kickoff LOVEfest in Central Park and rewind to 1969 when ‘Virginia is for Lovers’ was merely a spark in an advertising writer’s eye.
Then fast forward to NOW and soak in the love at LOVEfest, 2019! Cape Charles Main Street, Inc. has announced the LOVEfest on Saturday, July 6 and you won’t want to miss a single beat. Come relax and enjoy live music (you’ll love the British-invasion inspired band, ‘The English Channel’) while enjoying the view, bay breeze and fun with our great neighbors in Cape Charles’ Central Park. Special thanks to the concert hosts, Citizens For Central Park and The Town of Cape Charles.
There will also be a LOVE golf cart parade (plan to take part and deck out your ride with the groovy LOVEfest theme!), and late-60’s attire is welcome and encouraged. Bell bottoms, anyone? And that’s just the beginning—enjoy a special art weekend, free movies offered at the historic Palace Theatre (flicks from 1969, of course), and special deals and offers from local businesses.
The kickoff event, LOVEfest is just the beginning. Throughout the 50-day Summer of LOVE celebration, local businesses will be unveiling special offerings and events.
Our friends at Cape Charles Main Street, Inc. are reminding everyone to share what you love: don’t forget to take a photo or video at Cape Charles’ LOVE sign and share it—tag it with #sharewhatyoulove, #loveva, and #loveCCVC so everyone can see how much we all LOVE our hometown of Cape Charles in the beautiful state of Virginia.
See you during the Summer of LOVE!
