Mac Miller got a hometown send-off at Pittsburgh’s Frick Park on Tuesday night, where thousands attended a vigil for the rapper, who died at 26 last Friday following an apparent overdose. The site was chosen for its significance to Miller’s career: His 2011 debut album was named after the park’s playground, known as Blue Slide Park, located just two blocks from the high school he attended. Earlier in the day, the park’s eponymous slide reportedly received a fresh coat of blue paint in preparation for the vigil. Miller’s music played throughout the memorial, which his grandmother also attended to thank fans, who lit candles and left messages for Miller. Fans also decorated the park with murals and Steelers jerseys, for Miller’s favorite team. According to local reports, a petition was passed around to request that the name of the playground at Frick Park be changed to “Mac Miller Blue Slide Park.”
