Love locks in Maine
  • USAMaine State Portland

One of Maine’s treasure can be found on Commercial Street in Portland. It is located through a sidewalk The Love Lock fence is a rightly famous place for the tourists and citizens as well. Based on a local urban legend the first padlock was attached to the fence on February 13, 2013. Presumably a couple of friends started the tradition after a night of drinking. The specific date of the first spread of love locks is completely unknown, however it has started around the 2000’s. The ’inventor’ of this lovely tradition is still unknown. From 2013 the symbols of love are gathering, furthermore the memory of a person or individual are also represented on the Love Lock Fence. Some local citizens are worried about the consequences of the heavy padlocks. But have no worries the tradition has the local government’s full support. So feel free to chain your love to the fence.
