Times Square was filled with all kinds of love during a Valentine's Day celebration Friday.

It included surprise proposals broadcast on a giant screen, a handful of couples getting married and more than 175 couples renewing their vows.

"It's exciting. It's overwhelming. It's freezing. But it was a lot of fun," said one person. "We've been married for 21 years, and this was a nice way to celebrate it. Today's our anniversary."

"We got married in a little place 21 years ago," said another. "Compares nothing to this."

There were also 25,000 "Snuggle Bear" teddy bears being given away for free.

It was all part of a "Love in Times Square" promotion that runs through February.
