CORONA, Calif., Feb. 13 (UPI) -- The late Johnny Cash's children, John Carter Cash and Cindy Cash, are to take part in a birthday celebration in his honor at the Fender Center in Corona, Calif.

Cash was born Feb. 26, 1932, and died Sept. 12, 2003. His birthday event will be Feb. 22-24 at the Fender Center, home to the museum exhibit "Cash: An American Icon," which features some of his costumes, instruments, handwritten song lyrics, awards and memorabilia.

The celebration also will include seminars and Q&A sessions with John Carter and Cindy Cash, as well as Cash's longtime manager, Lou Robin, event organizer Bill Miller, a longtime friend of Cash's, said in a statement.

"This is an unprecedented opportunity for Johnny's fans to get together and hang out with Johnny's family, friends and intimates," said Miller, who operates Johnny Cash Radio and JohnnyCash.com, the official Johnny Cash Web site.

"It's a time to celebrate one of the largest musical icons in the world at an event the entire family can enjoy."

The salute to the "Man in Black" is expected to conclude with a musical performance by the Johnny Cash tribute band Cashd Out from San Diego.
