Before honoring their late father at this week’s "Goin' Back to Indiana” celebration in Gary, Indiana, Michael Jackson’s children -- Prince, Paris and Blanket -- visited Six Flags Great America in Gurnee Monday.

The children were accompanied by their cousin and new co-guardian, TJ Jackson, and other family members and friends.

"Goin' Back to Indiana: Can You Feel It” will take place Wednesday through Sunday in Jackson’s hometown and will pay tribute to “The King of Pop” on what would have been his 54th birthday. Jackson’s mother, Katherine, and sister, La Toya, are expected to attend the festivities, which will include a candlelight tribute ceremony Wednesday outside of Jackson's childhood home.
