The LOVE sign is 16 feet long and more than 6 feet tall. It is part of the "Virginia is for Lovers" marketing campaign and will be on display throughout the GardenFest of Lights event. Lewis Ginter is the first attraction in the state to display the artwork, which previously has been displayed only at Virginia welcome centers statewide.
