Beaufort Regional Chamber to hold celebration for Idol star

Posted: Updated:

St. Helena Island's own Candice Glover made it to the top three on American Idol Thursday night and now Glover is scheduled to fly back home.

The Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce is planning a Candice Glover Hometown Hero Celebration set to take place on May 4.

Glover is expected to return home to Beaufort on Friday evening. Glover's flight is scheduled to land Friday at 9 p.m. at Signature Flight Support, a private terminal at 1001 Davidson Drive, Suite 150, at the Savannah International Airport. Fans who want to greet Glover should arrive by 8 p.m.

On Saturday, Candice and the American Idol crew will be filming throughout the day. The visit will end with a parade starting on Bladen Street, heading to Bay Street, down New Castle Street, then left on Craven. The parade starts at 5 p.m.

After the parade, a concert will take place on the corner of Bay and Charles Streets at 7 p.m.

"We are talking about a three and a half minute segment that showcases Beaufort, all of the wonderful attributes here in Beaufort, our harbor, our downtown and of course all of the community that really comes together," said Jamie Dailey-Vergara, Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce.

The Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce is asking for donations to put on the events, and of course, they encourage everyone to continue voting for Candice.
