Stephen Chiasson took the opportunity of the tree lighting to propose to his girlfriend, Stacey Young, in front of their friends and family.
“She wanted it to be special,” he said.
Mayor Joe Gennoe introduced Chiasson after a performance from the G.R. Saunders choir, saying he had received a special request.
Chiasson shocked Young as well as the dozens in attendance.
The pair have been dating since April 2012.
