Get your lips moving in Victoria

Business association hosting its annual Kiss in the City contest

Barry and Linda Woldman share a kiss on Government Street on their way to a bridge game last year. The Downtown Victoria Business Association's annual Kiss in the City contest is open for entries until Feb. 3.

The Downtown Victoria Business Association is looking for the city’s best kissing couples.

Now in its fourth year, Kiss in the City calls on couples to snap a photo while they lock lips somewhere in the downtown core.

A judging panel will select the 10 best photos submitted to the DVBA Facebook page before Feb. 3 at midnight. It’s then up to the public to select the best shot before Feb. 10.

The winning couple will get a night at the Fairmont Empress, dinner at the Bengal Lounge and a variety of gifts from downtown retailers.
