Montpelierites have for years wondered who the Valentine’s Day Phantom could be. Each February 13, during the dead of night, the Phantom blankets Montpelier in red paper hearts, bringing a cheering décor to the city during its oft dreary midwinter days. In 2020, the Phantom enlisted a cadre of equally mysterious helpers to display thousands of hearts in municipal settings all across the state. VLCT members sent photos of some of these displays to VLCT, and we posted them on our Love Your Community photo gallery.
We hope this festive tradition continues in 2021 in downtowns, municipal properties, and home offices throughout Vermont.
