Bideford gets ready to paint the Little White Town red this Valentine’s Day in third festival of love.

Cupid will be delivering messages of love throughout Bideford this Valentine’s Day.

His arrival will be part of Bideford’s third Festival of Love, which will see the Little White Town turn red.

The event, organised by the Businesses of Bideford (BOB), takes place on Saturday.

This year traders will be dressing their windows to the theme of Disney couples, for shoppers to vote for their favourite.

Tonia Quance, of BOB, said: “This is being organised by Tanya Deemer of All Area Taxis, who came up with the idea.

“She especially wanted it to interest children as there will be a children’s vote on the best windows.”

There will be plenty of other events in and around the town.

Rob Pudner of Entertainingly Different, will be dressed as Cupid once again, delivering messages of love on Saturday, February 13.

Bideford Pannier Market will be hosting a special food and craft market that Saturday, with live music, from 8am-3pm.

And on the same day, Bideford Library will be hosting a ‘love bugs’ drop-in craft session for children from 10am-midday.
