Contrary to popular belief, May 4th is not simply the day before Cinco de Mayo. May 4th, also known as May the Fourth Be With You, is a special day for Star Wars fans to celebrate all things Luke, Leia and George Lucas.
For Patrick Quiring, a Star Wars super-fan, May 4th was the perfect day to pop the question.
The Fresno, Calif. man, who organized a Star Wars-themed pub crawl in his city on Friday, also coordinated a group of costumed dancers to surprise his girlfriend, Renee Lane, with a public proposal.
Lane said "Yes," much to the pleasure of light sabre-wielding fans and fellow pub crawlers.
Watch the video above to see the proposal, and click through the slideshow below to see more of our favorite proposal videos.
