A pancake race will be held on the village green in Houghton Regis town centre, at 11am on Shrove Tuesday, March 4.
Houghton Regis Town Council is reviving the tradition.
It is a free event and there is still time to enter a team.
The town council will provide the pancakes.
Teams, each with up to four people, will need to bring along the frying-pans.
And the team which completes the course in the shortest time, flipping the pancakes once at the start and again at the end, will win their age category.
Prizes will be presented by Houghton mayor Councillor Peter Williams.
Spectators are welcome. In the event of bad weather, the race will be moved to Moore Crescent, just in front of the sports pavilion.
