Celebrations for Michael Jackson’s birthday have grown from a block party around his boyhood home to a three-day festival set to start Thursday in what local officials and event promoters hope will become an annual affair. The Michael Jackson Tribute Festival of the Arts focuses not only on the the famous musician, but also on encouraging new artists. Previous events celebrating Michael’s birthday on August 29 have centered around his boyhood home at 2300 Jackson St. This year’s events have grown to encompass the nearby Roosevelt High School campus and will feature local and new artists. Katherine Jackson and other family members, including Michael Jackson’s children, will attend. #michaeljackson #greatestentertainerthateverlived #kingofpop #kingofpopkids #matriach #katherinejackson #thejacksons #family #gary #indiana #arts #festival #celebration #princejackson #parisjackson #blanketjackson #family #latoyajackson #marlonjackson #titojackson #jermainejackson #jackiejackson #2300 #jacksonstreet
