June 16 (UPI) -- Late Batman star Adam West was honored with a Bat-signal ceremony Thursday in Los Angeles.
West's friends and thousands of fans gathered at Los Angeles City Hall to remember the actor following his death last week at age 88.
"Remembering the #BrightKnight, Adam West. Rest in peace, Batman," Garcetti tweeted.
West's former co-star Burt Ward, who played Batman's sidekick Robin, was among the stars at the ceremony.
"My friend Adam would want every single one of you to be incredibly happy and to be joyous because he spent his entire life as a performer making people happy, making them laugh and trying to make this world a better place," the actor said, according to ABC7.
"Our dad always saw himself as the Bright Knight, and aspired to make a positive impact on his fans' lives. He was and always will be our hero," the actor's family said in a statement at the time.
