Lock Your Love: Valentine’s Weekend 2017

Saturday, February 11
Old Red Bridge, Red Bridge Road between Holmes and Blue River Road in south Kansas City

Take your Valentine to Minor Park and celebrate your commitment by “locking your love” to the Old Red Bridge! The placing of love locks is a custom whereby couples affix a padlock to a bridge, fence, gate or similar fixture thereby proclaiming their unbreakable and everlasting love.

You can lock your love anytime, but the area will be lighted from 5-10 p.m. on the Friday and Saturday nights before and after Valentine’s Day. Be sure and take a picture and post with the hashtags #kcparks and #redbridgelovelocks.

**NEW FOR 2017**  After you lock your love, help keep the Blue River clean by tossing your key into special boxes that will be onsite through February. Your donated keys will be used to create a sculpture of the iconic Monarch Butterfly that travels through Kansas City on its amazing multi-generational migration.  You can track the progress of the sculpture at MonarchsOnTheMove.org.

Watch a video about the Old Red Bridge Love Locks.
