ELKHART COUNTY, Ind.—An Osceola woman was “completely surprised” when her now-fiancé got down on one knee and popped the big question at the Elkhart County 4-H Fair on Thursday.

Emma Lewallen said her fiancé, Zack Murray, carried around the ring during their trip to the fair with her family.

“I had no idea,” Lewallen said. “I was so excited, of course I said yes.”

Murray proposed at the fair’s entrance as they were leaving for the day, Lewallen said, as a nod to her family’s tradition of visiting the fair each year. He had been planning the proposal for months, but was waiting for the right moment.

“Now the fair is our thing,” Lewallen said.

The pair, who live in Osceola, is hoping to get married locally sometime in the next year.
