Michael Jackson would have celebrated turning 56-years-old on Friday, and to honor him on his big day, family and close friends gathered at his childhood home in Gary, Indiana to remember the iconic pop star.
And Instagram photos taken at the event show just how much Michael's beloved kids have grown up in the past few years.
The event marked the first time the King of Pop's children, Prince, Paris, and Blanket, had been seen together in months.
Paris, 16, spent the past year away from her brothers at the Diamond Ranch Academy in Utah following a suicide attempt just over one year ago. She is now back in Calabasas, Calif., living with her grandmother, Katherine Jackson.
Even the town of Gary got in on the celebration, hosting a Michael Jackson Tribute Festival Of The Arts which began on Aug. 28, in honor of their most famous resident.
It's hard to believe it's been more than five years since Michael died on June 25, 2009.
