Love is (150 feet) in the air in Gatlinburg, Tennessee!

For the third year in a row, the city's world-famous SkyBridge is celebrating Valentine's Day by transforming into a "Tunnel of Love."

The immersive experience begins on the SkyDeck, where lovebirds are greeted by twinkling lights synced to the sounds of classic Motown songs. From there, visitors are invited to stroll through the swoon-worthy tunnel of made from 18,000 red-and-white lights spanning the length of North America's longest pedestrian suspension bridge.

If that's not enough to get your Valentine's heart pumping, the seven custom-welded hearts hanging beneath the bridge should do the trick!

"The SkyBridge and the other 'Insta-worthy' spots at the SkyLift Park have quickly become some of the most popular proposal locations in the Smokies. Since the opening of the SkyBridge, we can't even begin to count the number of proposals we've seen along the bridge and atop Crockett Mountain," Park Administrative Manager Marcus Watson said in a news release. "This year we wanted to create an even more romantic setting with twinkling red lights in the SkyBridge's Tunnel, a new photo op on the SkyTrail, and the natural backdrop of the highest peaks in the Smoky Mountains with the quaint town of Gatlinburg below. "

Gatlinburg SkyLift Park's "Love is in the Air" event begins Friday, February 4, and runs every night during the month of February. Entrance is included as part of the regular ticket price.

Have fun, y'all!
