Gina Glocksen to be Honored with a Parade

Goodbye, Gina
Voted out, but not forgotten.

Gina Glocksen may have been booted from American Idol last week, but officials in her hometown said they want to welcome her back in style.

Naperville, Illinois officials said details are still being finalized, but the city hopes to hold a parade honoring the 22-year-old dental assistant on Wednesday.

Mayor George Pradel said he was also contemplating a ceremony to give Glocksen a key to the suburban Chicago city. The festivities will be filmed for American Idol Extra, a behind-the-scenes show on FOX Reality Channel.

Glocksen grew up in Tinley Park, but has been living in Naperville for several years.

Glocksen is due back in town tomorrow; and the timing of the event hinges on her schedule. The plans are also tentative because they require approval from FOX, which still has her under contract.
