Holmfirth is to be transformed into a wartime town.
The clock will be turned back 100 years over the weekend of September 6 and 7.
Although these kind of events are now familiar in Brighouse, Meltham, Pickering and Haworth it is the first time Holmfirth has been given the full wartime makeover.
And organiser Trevor Bellamy said it was hoped, that if successful, it will become an annual event.
It will certainly have a highlight, wth a unique flypast by two Lancaster bombers.
On the Saturday there are people coming dressed in First World War uniform, as well as Yorkshire Regiment reservists complete with munitions, vehicles, letters from the Front, medals and communication equipment.
There will be members of the British Legion, Royal Air Force Association, Air Cadets, Scouts and Guides and Army veterans.
Funds will be raised for Help for Heroes, Army Benevolent Fund and SSAFA.
The town will also feature a vintage market, a tank display and an Army Base at the Sands recreation ground , as well as an exhibition of personal memorabilia on show at the Civic Hall.
Trevor, a parish councillor, said: “We have encouraged shopkeepers to make their shops look period and we hope people will come along and help commemorate the Great War.
“We have quite a lot of vintage vehicles such as Jeeps and Scout cars coming including some from Lancashire.”
Sunday promises plenty more military homage with the highlight of the day being two Lancaster Bombers set to perform a flyover at 3.30pm, an adventure into the past. One of them has flown over to the UK from Canada to take part in a series of commemorative events
Prior to that there will be a foot parade with mustering at 12.15pm and a service at The Sands at 1pm.
Trevor added: “And to finish we are going to have a Farewell Dance which seems appropriate as villages used to put on a farewell bash for departing lads going out to fight.
“My wife Kathleen and I are both on the parish council and thought it was about time Holmfirth put itself on the wartime map.
“We have an ideal place for it here and hopefully the public will respond in their droves.”
*There are still a few trade stalls to be filled, in particular vintage clothing and antiques. People can get more details from http://www.40s-events.co.uk/calendar.php#calendar ”
