And everyone is excited about Josh's homecoming.

"My heart is pumping so fast and I'm like 'Yay Josh!'," Katina Roberts of Westlake said.

"I'm excited for him," Tiffany Carrier said while waiting in line for her concert tickets. "I'm just proud."

And Becky Vincent said she's "so excited" for Josh to come home for the parade in Westlake and the concert.
