Visitors to the Virginia Peanut Festival will have the opportunity to take a picture with the new 6x16 foot LOVEwork site made of peanuts given to Emporia by the Virginia Tourism Corporation. This Peanut LOVEwork, located across from the Emporia Farmers Market and canoe/kayak launch at 100 South Main Street, is one of 36 sites across the state that will participate in a social media campaign to share the message that love is at the heart of every Virginia vacation. Festivalgoers will be encouraged to take a picture with the sculpture and share it on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Photos can be seen by logging on to www.Facebook.com/VirginiaisforLovers and on Twitter by searching #LOVEVA. The Virginia Peanut Festival feels that this campaign will certainly highlight the Emporia-Greensville area as it speaks to the heritage of the Virginia Peanut Farmers and will promote the Virginia Peanut Festival as an ideal destination for families looking to enjoy agritourism in Virginia. Please join us in Emporia, Virginia for the celebration of the 53rd Annual Virginia Peanut Festival on September 24-27, 2015.
