- Looking for love in all the right places
Not that you need an excuse to love on Dartmouth...but here's a great one. This Saturday (February 9) has been deemed Love Dartmouth Day, a celebration of the ever-growing group of great businesses in its downtown district. Getting a jump start of Valentine's Day tenderness, Love Dartmouth Day is encouraging shoppers to do some shopping for that special someone (in Dartmouth, of course) and also enter to win a sweet Love Dartmouth basket o' goodies valued at 500 smackers. Ballots for said basket can be filled out at any participating location, here's the list for printing/memorizing/planning purposes.

This is also an excuse for you Tweetaholics to send some love through the ether. Tweet the reasons you love Dartmouth to @DT_Dartmouth using the hastag #LoveDartmouth, and the day's most favourited tweet wins a gift card to the shop of their choice. SCORE! (Double score? Both the draw, and the Twitter love in run from February 7 until February 11) Also, serenader extraordinaire, Elvis, will be cruising downtown Dartmouth too. Bat your eyelashes extra hard and you might just get a love song. Hit the streets on Saturday. Go in the name of love...and Dartmouth.
