PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - If you’re thinking of asking your sweetie to marry you on Valentine’s Day and have a good Philadelphia story to tell, there’s a contest to help the winner do it style.
The Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation is holding a marriage proposal contest.
“Anyone who is interested in popping the question on Valentine’s Day and has a good Philly-centric love story and a photo to go with it can do that anytime from January 24th to February 3rd,” CEO Meryl Levitz said.
Contestants can enter on www.visitphilly.com/propose.
The winner of the “With Love, Philadelphia XOXO®” package gets an engagement ring, and overnight stay at a luxury hotel and a wedding proposal billboard on the side of a Philadelphia trolley works vehicle — to roll in when summoned for your big surprise.
