*Michael Jackson’s children and father visited the late pop star’s boyhood home in Gary, Ind., as the town celebrated what would have been his 53rd birthday, reports the AP.

Hundreds of fans took part in activities outside the house on Jackson Street over the weekend ahead of Jackson’s birthday today.

Paris Jackson, 13, told WLS-TV that she enjoyed seeing so many fans at the house when she and her brothers, 14-year-old Prince and 9-year-old Blanket, visited on Saturday. [Scroll down to watch raw footage.]

The Jackson family moved from Indiana to California in 1969 after the Jackson 5 struck it big.
