FOCUS: Plan ahead, arrive early if you’re flying over holiday weekend

Staff reports  |  As many as 100,000 people are expected to fly into or out of Charleston International Airport over the Thanksgiving holiday making it the busiest time of the year for the facility.

Last year, just over 95,000 passengers came through the airport during Thanksgiving. And so far this year, passenger counts are up over last year, which airport Executive Director and CEO Paul G. Campbell Jr. said he expected to continue through the end of the year.

“We are having a great year and we will reach, and possibly top, 4 million passengers in 2017,” Campbell said in a press release. “This next week we expect to be very busy with Thanksgiving travelers so we encourage everyone to plan ahead and arrive at the airport early.”

PHOTO ESSAY:  The wreathes of Charleston

You’ll see a lot of greenery, but every now and then you’ll find something a little different — a cast bird wrapped in holiday finery or pieces of copper bent into the shape of a wreath. In addition to driving around and looking at lights this holiday season, take a look at the ingenuity that people put into the wreathes on their doors.

We thought we’d offer you a look through his lens in this photo essay.
