We see flash mob proposals all the time -- but they're not usually in our own back yard. This weekend, one guy seized the opportunity during the South Street Spring Festival to propose to his girlfriend.

Dancers from the Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts surprised the big crowds and the woman by erupting in a choreographed dance routine that pulled what looked to be an innocent bystander up to dance with them.

Freddie Pantalone couldn’t have chosen a more appropriate song, Bruno Mars' “I Wanna Marry You,” to propose to his fiancé Erika Tartaglini. Of course she said yes.

The South Street Spring Festival attracted 40,000 people this year. The event is held annually on the first Saturday in May.

    New Video Game Sparks Debate In South Jersey

    Video games may be pure fantasy, but a violent action-adventure game called "Watch Dogs" has ignited a very real debate in one South Jersey community. Watch Dog allows players to adopt the persona of a James Bond-like computer hacker, chasing an evil mastermind. People say it's chock-full of foul language, sex and violence, features dark and foreboding backdrops. The latest version, which is due out this fall may be set in Camden.
