PHOTOS: The LOVE Statue Comes Back to Philly
The city welcomed it with an Eagles chant, of course.
Are you feeling the love, Philly?
No, I’m not talking about Valentine’s Day. This is about the LOVE statue, which has officially come home.
The statue’s long-awaited return was celebrated on Tuesday morning with LOVE on the Move, a parade through the city. Officials drove the statue to seven photogenic destinations (including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Logan Square and various spots along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway) before bringing it to LOVE Park for reinstallation.
Philly already can’t get enough of the newly restored work of art. Below, photos by HughE Dillon and some of the best tweets about the statue’s return (including one with an Eagles chant).
