Wisconsin firefighter proposes to girlfriend and her daughter at parade
MENOMONIE, Wis. (KMSP) - A Menomonie firefighter gave his girlfriend a special Christmas surprise Thursday night at the Winter Daze Parade in Menomonie, Wisconsin.
Matt Poliak was marching in the parade with his fellow firefighters alongside their decorated fire engine. His girlfriend of two years, Grace Johnson, was watching with her two-year-old daughter Isla.
When Poliak came to where they were sitting, the procession stopped and he beckoned them to come out to the street.
That's when he got down on a knee - not once, but twice.
To the excitement of the crowd, he proposed to his girlfriend and her daughter with two diamond engagement rings. And of course, they both said yes.
