Keithville man proposes to girlfriend at tree lighting ceremony

The Christmas spirit moves one man to "pop the question."
People feel the Christmas spirit as the Louisiana Boardwalk hosts its annual tree lighting ceremony.

With Christmas music in the background, hundreds gathered to see the Christmas tree light up, along with the rest of the property.

Santa and Mrs. Clause showed up for the festivities, plus the crowd got to witness another special event.

William Edwards proposed to his girlfriend, Sandra Anderson.

The two have been dating for five months, but William says he's been after Sandra for years.

"It was very nervous,” says William. “I mean as soon as the snow started, I turned her around and had her, and I was on one knee."

"He's chased me for seven years, and after seven years, I think I finally slowed down long enough to catch me," says Sandra.

The two hope to get married on Valentine's Day.
