Rockport — Dozens of red hearts appeared in downtown Rockport Wednesday morning, Feb. 14, marking the arrival of Valentine's Day. Cut from red construction paper, the hearts adorned storefronts, light poles and even bridges.

According to Assistant Town Clerk Shay Ames, no one at the Town Office knows the identity of the mystery decorator, but their festive efforts have made this Valentine's Day a memorable one.
