Only months out from celebrating the Rankins Springs centenary, the final itinerary has been unveiled for the event.
The celebration of 100 years of the founding of the railway line which led to the town's establishment will be held the weekend of September 15, 2023.
Rankins Springs Progress Association President, Rocky Hudson, said excitement is being felt in the build up which was evident during a meeting on Wednesday night.
"It's proving a big job but we're getting there. As we get closer, I think people in the community are thinking more about it," Mr Hudson said.
"The film being screened at the hall should be a major draw card, with interviews recently completed of older residents sharing their memories of the early years and the changes that have happened since. That will be unveiled on the Friday night.
"There is still a little work to be done around our time capsule. The goal is to have that happen on Saturday afternoon. It's a work in progress."
Mr Hudson said the committee is looking for additional funds to update a book on the history of Rankins Springs and a permanent fixture to be erected within the town's iconic windmill.
"A book was compiled some 50 years ago - the goal is to update it," Mr Hudson said.
"We also want to install a permanent display about the towns past and businesses, as well as an honour board with the names of the those who helped that."
Meanwhile, the local pub will also be a hive of activity, with both the upstairs and downstairs bars to be running and three bands delivering live music to the masses.
"Our pub plans are certainly locked in," pub owner Johnathan Streat said.
Music will be playing from around 2pm on Saturday, with food and coffee vans on site all day and into the evening, as well as a jumping castle for youngsters.
Cleaning and tidying the town will happen over the next few weekends in preparation.
Mr Streat said everything is coming together.
"The only thing we need to confirm are the fireworks which we may need assistance from council with given we weren't able to book a contact from Canberra. But we're confident of being able to make the fireworks happen too," he said.
