The second-annual LoveULoveU Day will be held Aug. 19 from noon – 3 p.m. at Opelika’s Municipal Park.
The free event will feature food, music from D.J. Hollywood and local indie/folk duo Martha’s Trouble and rides on the Rocky Brook Rocket.
“The premise of the event is loving on one another, at least one day of the year. It doesn’t have to be your immediate family like we do on Christmas and Thanksgiving, but the people who live in your community,” said event organizer Raven Harvis. “I want people to come out and experience a sense of unity in our community.”
Opelika’s LoveULoveU Day is a part of a statewide movement by the Mobile-based LoveULoveU organization, which will be hosting similar events on Aug. 19 in neighboring cities including Auburn and Valley.
