Dick Van Dyke had a “jolly holiday with Mary” to kickstart his 90th birthday celebration this weekend. He watched as fans dressed as Mary Poppins characters gathered for a flash mob at The Grove in Los Angeles on Saturday.

“I am very grateful that at 90 years old, I can still go out and play,” Van Dyke wrote on Twitter along with video of the affair from Disney Examiner shot by Trevor Perez. The flash mob performed choreographed dances to songs like “Jolly Holiday” and “Step in Time,” which Van Dyke performed in 1964’s Mary Poppins as the lovable chimney sweep Bert.
