Looking back on a fun and memorable summer day can be difficult to summarize, but Scranton filmmaker Jamie Sutor of Parents’ Basement Films did an excellent job with a highlight reel of Loyalty Barber Shop and Shave Parlor of Scranton‘s first annual Motorcycle Run.

Held on Sunday, Aug. 9, over 200 riders met at the shop in downtown Scranton in the morning and rode to The Gravity Inn in Waymart at 1 p.m., where the video was shot, including some aerial drone footage. With all profits donated to the family of fallen Scranton Police Patrolman John Wilding, the event featured entertainment, games, raffles, a motorcycle show, a buffet, a beer tasting by 3 Guys and a Beer’d, and plenty of camaraderie, so there was a lot to capture that day; all the footage is set to Manchester Orchestra‘s “I Can Barely Breathe.” The tragedy of young Officer Wilding’s passing last month may have stunned the community, but Sunday served as a celebration of bravery and loyalty.
