Convoy Heading to Harrisburg and Washington DC Passes through Schuylkill County

 A convoy heading to Harrisburg and eventually Washington DC passed through Schuylkill County on Thursday.

The convoy, called the "Northeast Convoy", was traveling south on Interstate 81 on it's way to Harrisburg to protest vaccine and mask mandates, as well as gas prices.  This convoy was reported to be joining up with a larger convoy that was heading for the Nation's Capitol.

The several mile long convoy, that included tractor trailers, pickup trucks, motorhomes, vans, and buses, entered Schuylkill County just before 2:00pm and was greeted on the overpasses by others showing support by waving flags and holding banners.
