The event, to be held July 4 at the town recreation field, will be preceded by a gala parade.
Officers of the Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce, helping organize the festivities, are expecting a fun-filled old fashioned gathering.
The parade will feature various community groups, musical ensembles, sports teams and service organization.
After the procession, activities including game for children commence at the recreation field.
A box lunch auction, a traditional rural activity, is among the featured events. The auction entails women preparing a lunch and men bidding to share the meal.
Also, a mustache contest is planned, so men are urged to start growing facial hair now so they can compete.
