NEW! Love Sign Dedication

Drive Smart Virginia is creating a Virginia LOVE sculpture to bring to life their LOVE Clicks campaign for road safety. The sculpture will be unveiled at the Meadow Event Park during its first Virginia Farm Festival on May 1 at 10:30am. The sculpture includes elements from vehicles and farm machinery collected from Virginia Farm Bureau members, and is being constructed at a workshop on the grounds of the former Field Days of the Past location near Richmond. The sign is intended to remind Virginians to buckle up, drive safely and watch out for farm equipment on Virginia roadways.
