SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — With San Diego Comic-Con fans missing the convention in-person this year, some have instead left a tribute across the street from the convention center.

Fans of the pop culture event recently began leaving flowers, t-shirts, and notes of their memories from past Comic-Cons outside TinFish — a popular site for people watching and off-site SDCC experiences every year.

Chris Morrow, one of the organizers of the shrine, says the tribute was organized as a way for fans to continue connecting over their shared love of the convention.

"Residents from San Diego County got together to show love and respect to Comic-Con. The popular arts convention is online this year and residents wanted to let everyone know San Diego Comic-con is not forgotten and we will see them back in person 2021 in San Diego," Morrow wrote.

She says that they're asking fans to socially distance and drop off a note or flowers until Monday, July 27. Then, notes will be cleaned up and sent to Comic-Con organizers.

"We hope this brings a smile and a little SDCC to our city in 2020," Morrow added.

Morrow says while some items have been stolen or torn down, they are working to keep it maintained.
