If you were anywhere near town on Saturday around lunchtime, you couldn’t miss the thunder of motorcycles and other vehicles — escorted by numerous local officials — as the tribute ride to PSP Trooper Brad Wilson roared through Punxsutawney.

The ride was a part of a day full of festivities to welcome home
Wilson, who was seriously injured while executing a warrant on Sept. 26, 2013.
