June 12-21, Grand Rapids, Minn.

You don’t have to click your heels three times to go to Judy’s hometown (pop. 8,000), where seniors claim to remember the diva’s debut, at 2 l/2, at the New Grand Theatre in 1924. This year the Itasca County Historical Society Museum will display the blue-check gingham dress and ruby slippers Garland wore in The Wizard of Oz as well as the Oscar she clutched as Vicki Lester in A Star Is Born. Yellow brick roadies can also check out a lawn fair, a fashion show with Judy’s real gowns (June 18), an emerald hunt and two performances on June 20th by—gasp!—Garland herself (or so female impressionist Jim Bailey would have you believe).
