Celebrating The King Of Pop And Jackson 5
August 29th would have marked the 55th Birthday of the pride of Gary, Indiana, Michael Jackson. On Wednesday, members of the Gary community came together for a ribbon cutting ceremony to open a new exhibit celebrating the King of Pop and Jackson 5.
Presented by the Chicago Blues Museum, the “Never Can Say Goodbye” exhibit is a glimpse into the lives of Gary’s most famous family in rare images.
The attraction was unveiled in the Majestic Star Casino’s South Shore Event Center to an exclusive crowd, including Gary Mayor Karen-Freeman Wilson.
Also in attendance were longtime fans and friends of the Jackson family.
Founder of the Chicago Blues Museum, Gregg Parker, says he plans on partnering with the city of Gary in honoring the King of Pop and Jackson 5 for years to come.
The “Never Can Say Goodbye” exhibit is on display in the Majestic Star Casino’s South Shore Event Center August 29th through September 5th. The attraction is free, and open to members of the public ages 21 and over.
