Hundreds of fans gathered at Blue Slide Park on Fri., Sept. 10 to celebrate the life of Mac Miller, listen to his music, and create art a few days following the third anniversary of his passing in 2018. The annual event was organized and run by Zach Dimartini, Marc-Andre Lauzon, and Cody Lee, the team behind the social media account @MacMillerMemoir on Twitter and Instagram.

Fans from all over the country descended upon Frick Park, making their way to Frick Park Market and touring the hometown that was the subject matter of so many of Taylor Allderdice alumni Malcolm McCormick's raps. Artists like Pittsburgh resident Carlee Overly and others live-painted portraits while song after song was sung by those in attendance.
