Fans plan to converge on Pittsburgh's Blue Slide Park to celebrate the life of Mac Miller on the anniversary of his death. 

This weekend, The Mac Miller Memoir Twitter account announced that the gathering will be held on Sept. 7, which is exactly a year after Mac Miller passed away. According to the tweet, the festivities will begin at 12 p.m. and extend until people are ready to leave.

"We will have music & videos being played," the tweet reads. "This is a time to share the amazing memories of an amazing person."

Miller named his debut album Blue Slide Park, after the section of Frick Park in Pittsburgh. Following his death, the namesake slide and park was home to a vigil, where fans came to pay their respects to the late rapper. In the following weeks, so many fans visited the park that Miller's family went to speak to the crowd.

While Miller has been immortalized with murals and artwork around the country, Blue Slide Park is Pittsburgh's only (unofficial) memorial for the rapper. According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the city is still looking for its first mural tribute for Miller. His family is reportedly in talks with city officials about getting "some kind of marker in Blue Slide Park," where Miller spent a lot of his time as a kid.
