QUEENSBURY, N.Y. (AP) — Cinderella has agreed to marry her prince, after he got down on one knee and asked her to live happily ever after with him.

Sarah Cordts of Saratoga Springs has played Cinderella at the Great Escape theme park 50 miles north of Albany for eight years. On Friday, her boyfriend, Navy Lt. Russell Lidberg, visited her at the park in his dress whites, got down on one knee, and proposed as a crowd of children looked on.

The Glens Falls Post-Star reports that Lidberg, a 29-year-old Minnesota native, has served in Afghanistan and now works at the Naval Nuclear Power Training Unit in Saratoga County. Cordts is a graduate student at the University at Albany.

After the proposal, the couple danced, and the park announced that Cinderella was engaged.

      Slow news day… Unless you want another Bachman wins / Pawlenty withdraws story.

    2. why? says:

      Honestly – I am happy as hell to read on occaison things that make one feel good. The web is 90% doom and gloom and the light and high road is a nice change.
      I’m in the opposite camp I guess but suspect many are on in agreement
