​​​​City Invites Residents to Craft Hearts to Decorate "Tree of Love"

January 24, 2023

The City has "left the lights on" the holiday tree in Market Square, and with another holiday coming up on February 14, is inviting residents to help decorate the "Tree of Love."

From school children to seniors, the Portsmouth Recreation Department welcomes all who would like to participate. Go to free templates with heart designs to download and decorate. Then drop your decorated Valentine heart at the Community Campus (100 Campus Drive) by Thursday, February 9. The staff will laminate the hearts, add hanging strings and the DPW will use the hearts to decorate the holiday tree. Hearts may also be left at the City Hall reception desk in the main lobby.

The decorating should be complete by Friday, February 10. The Recreation Department invites everyone to spend some time on the Valentine's Day Weekend with a walk downtown to admire the tree.
