Dick Van Dyke‘s 90th birthday was marked by a chimney sweep flash mob.
The veteran actor reached the milestone age yesterday and enjoyed a number of public celebrations, including the Mary Poppins dance tribute at Los Angeles’ outdoor shopping mall The Grove on Saturday.
Dick and his wife Arlene Silver-Van Dyke, 44, stood on an upper level to cheer as the flash mob danced along to “Step in Time,” “Jolly Holiday,” “Chim Chim Cher-ee” and “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” and took part in a singalong, and he later described the performance – which was choreographed by Dana and Jenna Spellman – in a YouTube video that he shared on Twitter: ”Unbelievable! Oh my God! Great!”
Dick later joined the crowd to sing another tune from the musical, “Let’s Go Fly a Kite” and enjoyed having “Happy Birthday” sung to him.
He later tweeted: ”I am very grateful that at 90 years old, I can still go out and play!!”
And the birthday fun didn’t end on Saturday as yesterday he was honored in Disneyland with a dedication ceremony.
This time, he sang “Jolly Holiday” for well-wishers, and was serenaded with “Let’s Go Fly a Kite.”
He and wife Arlene were the marshals for the Christmas Parade at the Californian resort and led the troupe in a classic car.
The crowd sang a Happy Birthday song to the legendary actor and the theme park even produced a limited-edition birthday cake.
