Michael Jackson, who as a Jehovah’s Witness traditionally did not celebrate his own Birthday, is being thrown a large posthumous party by Spike Lee in Prospect Park on Saturday, August 29.

On Saturday, thousands are expected to fill the Nethermead meadow in the center of Prospect Park to celebrate Mr. Jackson’s life on what would have been his 51st birthday. The party, originally planned as a block-party-style gathering for 2,000 in Fort Greene Park, was moved to Prospect Park, which is larger, to accommodate a crowd that organizers believe could grow to 10,000.

The free event will be from noon to 5 p.m., rain or shine. [NYTimes.com]
