FRIENDS of Ophelia Silcox will gather in Queens Park, Maryborough, tomorrow to farewell the 14-year-old, who died in a car crash earlier this week.

Mourners will meet at 11.30am and will release balloons into the sky about 12.30pm.

Organisers of the event are encouraging people to write notes for the Gundiah girl, who is a former Aldridge and Maryborough High student, to be placed inside the balloons before they are released.

Ophelia's sister Curtsie, 15, has indicated on Facebook that she will attend the event.

Ophelia died instantly when the ute she was a passenger in slid off a dirt road and crashed into a tree at Paterson, south-west of Tiaro about lunchtime on Wednesday.

Curtsie was driving the vehicle.
