ASHEVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -

Thousands came out to Asheville for Mountain Moral Monday and a "moral march to the polls rally."

The group said the non-partisan rally was aimed at voter registration and trying to get people to head to the polls come this fall.

Asheville police estimated about 4,500 people convened at Pack Square Park.

Last year, hundreds were arrested in Raleigh during a similar rally last year.

The event featured North Carolina NAACP president Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II and other guest speakers.

It also had opportunities for people to register to vote.
