An unofficial tribute to actor Paul Walker and his friend Roger Rodas drew thousands of people Sunday afternoon to the street where the two died in a car crash Nov. 30.
Nearly 8,000 fans responded to a Facebook invite for memorial gathering in honor of Walker and Rodas, so roads surrounding the event in Santa Clarita, Calif. were packed with cars, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff.
The tribute was widely disseminated via social media, and the slogan “Race in Peace” was coined to remember the late actor.
Thousand of cars, many of them souped-up street racers, were allowed to drive two abreast in one direction down Hercules Street, the street on which the accident occurred, according to CNN, with many fans parking blocks away and walking to the memorial. Hundreds of bouquets of flowers and memorial candles lined the sidewalk.
The SoCal Car Meets Facebook page asked fans to obey all traffic laws and drive safely.
