If you’re looking for something to do other than make googly eyes at your sweetie over a fancy dinner this weekend, read on.

Franconia Sculpture Park‘s Valentine’s Day Hot Iron Pour is a unique, fun way to spend the day with the love of your life (or the person you’re hoping to be the love of your life) and see art in the making.

Taking place from 12pm to 5pm on Saturday, February 13, the pour brings together a group of experienced cast-metal sculptors who will take red-hot, glowing liquid iron, pour it into a 150-pound ladle, and then use that ladle to fill one-of-a-kind sculpture molds.

Bring a thermos of something hot to drink, get cozy by the bonfire, and enjoy an afternoon shared experiences. After all, what’s more romantic than making new memories together?
