This year, Virginia celebrates the Summer of Love. Hard to believe it’s been a half-century since the state rolled out its “Virginia is for Lovers” campaign, but it has. And across the state, cities and communities are joining in on this milestone achievement.

Cape Charles is certainly enjoying the celebration! Check out our tributes to it here and here. As part of this statewide party, the town will be hosting a LOVE & Art on Virginia’s Cape weekend, August 16-18.
