To celebrate his 90th birthday, a group of devoted fans performed two of Dick Van Dyke’s most beloved tunes: “Step in Time” and “Jolly Holiday,” from his 1964 film Mary Poppins. The flash mob performed the two classics in Los Angeles, California where Van Dyke lives.
Van Dyke eventually joined in, singing his most famous tune, “Let’s Go Fly a Kite,” with the crowd.
