In the spirit of love, the event will give back to the community. The city is partnering with the Loveland Stage Company, which is raising money to replace its theater’s HVAC system. On Feb. 9 and 10, the theater will host Crushin It, a Valentine-themed variety show. All proceeds will go toward the HVAC fundraiser.

Additionally, the city is hosting a Hearts Afire Valentine Pageant at the Loveland Stage Company on Saturday for children ages 1-4. The pageant will be judged by the Loveland Valentine Ladies, a local group of women known for their community service. All proceeds will go to the Loveland Stage Company’s HVAC system.
