Carrie Fisher to be remembered at Wings Over the Rockies in Denver on Wednesday


Carrie Fisher fans can remember the iconic actress Wednesday night at a vigil hosted by the Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum in Denver.

Fisher died Tuesday at the age of 60 after suffering a medical emergency aboard a flight Friday.

The daughter of Hollywood royalty, Fisher is best known for her role as Princess Leia in “Star Wars.” She also turned her experiences with addiction and mental illness into bestselling books, stage performances and a film.

A speaker will begin Wednesday’s vigil with a candle and lightsaber tribute at 6:45 p.m. An X-Wing Starfighter, the ship flown by rebels in the Star Wars films, will be on display for people who want to pay their respects.

The vigil is free and will go from 5-7 p.m. Wednesday. The museum is located at 7711 E. Academy Blvd., Denver.
