Gary, Indiana is where several of our country's celebrities and athletes have grown up, but none bigger than Michael Jackson, the King of Pop. It was announced Tuesday that Katherine Jackson, the mother of Micheal Jackson, and his three children will visit Gary in late August in celebration of what would have been the singer's 54th birthay.

A candlelight vigil is planned for August 29, Jackson's birthday. The event is part of the "Goin' Back to Indiana: Can You Feel It?" tour from August 29 through September 1. More information is available on the Facebook page -
