GARY, Ind. — Michael Jackson»s hometown in Indiana is planning another tribute to the «King of Pop» just two months after marking the one-year anniversary of his death.

A news release issued by the city says a tribute will be held outside Jackson’s boyhood home in Gary on Saturday, a day before what would have been his 52nd birthday.

Gary Mayor Rudy Clay says the city is honoring Jackson’s memory as a great and giving person and as the world»s greatest entertainer. The Jackson Family moved out of the city after the Jackson 5 struck it big in 1969.

Organizers say the event Saturday will include local entertainers and a Michael Jackson impersonator.

Jackson died last year in Los Angeles of an overdose of sedatives.
