Dancer and actor Tommy Tune led a parade at Garrison’s Landing for the second time on Saturday (June 16). The first was 50 years ago, during the filming in the summer of 1968 of a scene for Hello, Dolly! in which Tune strolled with Barbra Streisand as they sang “Put on Your Sunday Clothes.”
The 2018 parade was followed by an ice cream social, a Q&A with Tune, a riverboat cruise and an outdoor screening of the film by the Cold Spring Lions.
The Hello Again, Dolly! festival, organized by Christopher Radko, continues on Saturday, June 23, with a presentation by Radko at 5 p.m. at the Putnam History Museum in Cold Spring (free for members, or $10 otherwise), followed by a sold-out evening of songs at the Philipstown Depot Theatre called Simply Streisand.
