Organized by the Centerville Volunteer Fire Department, the event kicks off with the parade at 11 a.m. Food will be served starting at noon.
The meal includes beans, cornbread, hot dogs, pies, cakes and refreshments. New this year is a hog roast, so pork sandwiches will also be available, organizers said.
Breakfast will be served by the Centerville Masonic Lodge from around 7 until 10 a.m.
Beth Fowble will be singing the national anthem and live music will be featured during the event. A raffle auction is scheduled and LifeFlight is expected to have one of its helicopters on hand for a demonstration about 1 p.m.
Former Mayor Ted Perroud, who stepped down Jan. 1 after 30 years in the post, will be honored during the event, village council member Ann Daniels said. Perroud has since been succeded by Gene Layton.

Traditionally held on the fourth Saturday in May, the bean dinner and parade are the launching point for Memorial Day Weekend activities in Gallia County.
Daniels said the dinner has served as a homecoming for people who have left the area since it coincides with the annual Centerville High School alumni banquet that evening. The banquet is held in the former Centerville Elementary School, which is also the seat of village government.
