Destination Gettysburg has announced that as as of today, 95 couples have registered for the free event, hailing from Delaware, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia. Many couples will be celebrating anniversaries, ranging from newlyweds to sweethearts who have been married for nearly 60 years.

The event will include prize drawings, photos at the kissing booth, live music, hot chocolate, desserts and more.

“Gettysburg Loves Love is all about celebrating the love we have for each other and for this community,” Destination Gettysburg Director of Partnership Amy Welsh said. “Countless people hold love in their hearts for this historic town, and we want to shine a spotlight on Gettysburg’s romantic, cozy charm.”

Couples are encouraged to RSVP for the vow renewal ceremony at Families, friends, and singles are also welcome to join in this free outdoor event.

The Valentine’s celebration comes on the heels of Gettysburg being recognized as one of the top romantic destinations in the region. New York Travel Guides crowned Gettysburg as the most romantic small town in Pennsylvania, and U.S. News & World Report claimed Gettysburg as one of the Top 20 most romantic getaways in the Keystone State.
