A WCCO camera captured the moment when James Hicks popped the question to his girlfriend Christen Blue at the Sunday night Holidazzle Parade in downtown Minneapolis.

When Santa’s float stopped in front of the Dakota Jazz Club, Santa made an announcement that Hicks and Blue should step out front and center. Hicks proposed and his bride-to-be said yes before he could even get to one knee.

It was the second Holidazzle proposal of the weekend, WCCO reported.

Here's the video:
