Thousands turn out for tributes to Paul Walker

Thousands turned out over the weekend for fan-organized tributes dedicated to Paul Walker, honoring the "Fast & Furious" actor who died in a car crash with his friend Roger Rodas on Nov. 30.

Attendees at the Los Angeles tribute walked uphill to the site of the crash while a line of cars — from Lamborghinis to a souped-up VW Bus — drove alongside, according to The Hollywood Reporter

Walker's "Fast & Furious" co-star Rick Yune put in an appearance, and a plane that read, "RIP God be with Fast & Furious star Paul Walker" and "Our hearts go out to his friends & family," flew over the service TODAY reported. The plane was rumored to have been sent by Paris Hilton, but later in a Twitter post she denied having sent it.

"I felt really inspired by him, so I felt like I had to come and pay my respects," one fan told TODAY.

A church located near the site provided coffee, water and hot chocolate to attendees. Rodas, 38, and Walker, 40, had owned a custom auto shop located behind the church.
