He’s baaaaack in Rockwall.

American Idol finalist Jason Castro is to be honored Thursday in his hometown. Castro, his family, Mayor Bill Cecil, “groupies” — Castro’s not the mayor’s — dreadlocked buses and the Chick-Fil-A Cow will participate in a parade at 5:30 p.m., followed by Cecil giving Castro the key to the city and a three-song performance that will include his Hawaiian-style ukulele-driven interpretation of “Over the Rainbow” — Castro’s not the mayor’s.

Update: Castro is scheduled to appear on Fox 4’s Good Day on Wednesday morning.

      I am soooo excited about today!! Can’t wait to see My American Idol. Makes me wish I had Latin in me! I haven’t been this excited since the time I met the Backstreet Boys! I even switched schedules at work!! OMG I am sooo bad!!!

    I want to go so much but alas I cannot. Are they going t0 air this on KERA? That would be awesome. Please do that so we can all see Jason and his family finally get the acknowledgment they deserve. He was treated so horribly by AI and we are just so proud at how he just turned the other cheek and remembered to do unto others they way that you want them to do unto you. Well done Jason!

  • Darcy Castro

    I am sooooo excited, just like the day I met all the boys from the New Kids on the Block!!! I even switch my schedule at work to attend this parade! OMG I told those fools at work I had to take care of my niece, hehe I am so bad!! Somebody spank me, …Jason??? JASON FOR EVER!!!!
