Description

The 17th Annual Lovers Aloft event is held each year during the closest weekend to Valentine's Day. The event has wine tasting, scavenger hunts, and lots of food. It has been warm has been cold but always a great time. Thursday has a school program and a hospital flight for long-term care residents. Thursday also has a night glow in front of the only round courthouse still in operation in America. Friday is media day and practice for scores. Saturday is our traditional ribbon race in honor of the Lovelock name and a metaphor for marriage in honor of Valentine's Day. Sunday includes several other competitions and then our awards ceremony and this year a Superbowl Party
