Lovers Aloft Balloon Festival
There’s no better place to spend Valentine’s Day than Lovelock—the “Heart of Nevada.” Held during the weekend nearest February 14, the Lovers Aloft Balloon Festival sees dozens of hot air balloons take to the skies in celebration of love and community.
Lovelock’s loftiest celebration includes the Lights of Love Glow Show at Temptations and a mass ascension every morning (weather permitting). Other Valentine’s Day-themed events often include marriage vow renewals, hot air balloon rides, and more.
People from all over the West flock to Lovelock to follow the ancient Chinese tradition of locking their love at Lovers Lock Plaza, right in the heart of downtown next to the Pershing County Courthouse. Get your hands on special heart-shaped locks available for sale at most Lovelock restaurants, shops, and businesses, then forever lock your love with a soulmate, family member, or friend. Don’t forget the marker for writing on your lock!
