Katherine Jackson and Family Are 'Goin' Back to Indiana'
Jackson family matriarch Katherine Jackson announced Wednesday she and her family are participating in “Goin' Back to Indiana: Can You Feel It,” a four-day event in Gary, Indiana, remembering the city's most famous native son, Michael Jackson.
“We have been working in partnership with Mrs. Katherine Jackson and her team to create events that will showcase Michael's entertainment legacy and his wonderful birthplace of Gary, Indiana,” said Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson. “As Mayor of this great city, I am enthusiastic about the opportunities that this celebration will bring. We envision this to become an annual event that will grow larger as the years progress.”
On Thursday, August 30, Michael's three children -- Prince, Paris and Blanket -- will attend the Gary SouthShore RailCats baseball game when the team faces the St. Paul Saints.
The event runs from August 29 through September 1.
