Huntsville-Madison County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau is ‘spreading the love’ with annual #iHeartHsv campaign

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- Valentine's Day is right around the corner and the Huntsville Madison County Convention and Visitor's Bureau (CVB) is working on 'spreading the love'.

Many are already familiar with #iHeartHsv. Huntsville officials held an event Wednesday to announce that starting February 1 through February 14 you can take your love for the city and get some love back.

Those who participate in the two-week campaign have the chance to win big prizes. All you have to do is look out for the prompt of the day from the CVB and tag your Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram photos with the #iHeartHsv! The winners will also have their photo featured in a new visitor's pocket guide highlighting all that the city has to offer.

Prizes include a free stay at a Huntsville/Madison County hotel, #iHeartHsv t-shirts, tickets to shows and other things to do around town and so much more. Winners will be selected by a committee of CVB team members based on the use of the hashtag #iHeartHsv, relevance to the day's prompt and pictures that are deemed to best display the uniqueness of beauty and culture of Huntsville/Madison County as a visitor destination. To be eligible to win each photo must be originally taken by the entrant. Each day's winner will be announced at 8:30 p.m. CST each night of the contest.

"I've watched the city grow and I've watched over the years as you know our offerings have expanded for visitors and we have so many things that are up and coming that are so exciting," said Kristen Pepper, Marketing Manager for Huntsville Madison County Convention and Visitor's Bureau.

Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle spoke at the event as well about the many people who have visited the city. "As they go back home, they always have that idea of 'wow, I had no idea.' And that's the great thing, that's the 'I heart Huntsville' that's the 'I love Huntsville.'"
