Fans who are still mourning the loss of the King of Pop one year ago today, might be looking for a way to pay tribute to him on the anniversary of his death. And the Forest Lawn Memorial Park, just across the L.A. River from Burbank, California, is expected to be the epicenter of Michael Jackson memorials.
The final resting place of the Gloved One is bracing for increased traffic to the cemetery where Jackson was laid to rest last year. Although fans will not be allowed inside the mausoleum where Michael is housed, they will be allowed to walk in front of the Holly Terrace and leave flowers and tributes in a designated area.
But there is also a long list of things they will not be allowed to do. There will be no signing, dancing, or releasing of balloons.
Authorities have also banned doves. But that hasn’t stopped one motivated Facebook group, Doves of L.O.V.E. Release, who insist that they will be freeing 200 white birds into the skies above Forest Lawn. Still, they don’t list an official time or give many details, so several followers are questioning the validity of the site.
Forest Lawn-Hollywood Hills is located at 6300 Forest Lawn Drive in Los Angeles, California. For directions visit their website or call 1-800-204-3131. The park is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (6:00 p.m. during DST).
