Renew Your Vows at the Crossroads of the World on Valentine's Day
This Valentine’s Day, the Times Square Alliance will host a celebration of love and romance during a large vow renewal ceremony on the iconic Red Steps in Times Square on Monday, February 14th, at 6:00 PM. The ceremony is free and open to people of all ages, genders, religions, races, and backgrounds. Joining us to kick off the ceremony will be one comic from Carolines on Broadway’s February 14 My Funny Valentine shows – and 5 lucky winners will receive vouchers for a pair of tickets to future shows. As the vow renewal concludes, official Times Square confetti will flutter around the participants. To register for the vow renewal ceremony, visit TSq.org/vows.

As the lovebirds renew their vows, they will overlook the winner of this year’s 14th annual Love in Times Square Design Competition: “Bloom” by Habitat Workshop. From afar, Bloom will resemble a pavilion — a circular roof supported by a series of interlocked red and white PVC pipes. From above, it blooms from the center with an arrangement of pixelated hearts. And from below, it becomes a buoyant cloudscape where the pipes overhead, descending to different heights, become vaulted portals allowing light to peek through from all directions. The structure channels the brightness of Times Square and showers down rays of light that greet visitors once they enter the structure, serving as a reminder of the fleeting moments of happiness and joy that persevere even in the shroud of darkness. Bloom is an homage to the collective love for humanity — a shared experience that creates a sheltered canopy in the middle of Times Square — for all New Yorkers and visitors alike. Embodying both human fragility and strength, the work reminds us that we are all bound together, each with the responsibility to uplift and support one another so we can float together. More information about Bloom can be found at TSQ.org/Bloom.
