Visitor Alex Petalas today made a grand gesture to his girlfriend Ingrid Robinson when he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him during the Republic Bank Grand Kadooment.

On top of the Aura truck, in front of hundreds of revellers, Petalas expressed his unadulterated love for Robinson before asking her the question at approximately 1:11 p.m.

She responded with a loud yes, and her response was met with loud cheers and applause from those on the truck as well as those on the ground, after the deejay offered congrats over the mic.

The newly engaged Robinson stood staring at her ring in awe for several minutes while wiping tears away.

The couple are visiting from San Francisco and played mas with Aura today and said they thoroughly enjoyed it, as it was the perfect celebration for their engagement. (DB)
