WARREN — Warren’s Birthday Bash will be celebrated Aug. 24 to Aug. 26 at City Square on Van Dyke Avenue, north of 12 Mile Road, with live entertainment, fireworks, carnival rides, food trucks, a beer tent and more.

Fireworks are scheduled for Friday, Aug. 25, at dusk.

If you like to wet your whistle, stop by the many food trucks with tasty libations ranging from healthy juices at Beyond Juicery + Eatery, to frozen treats at The Frozen Spoon. For those 21 and older, the Warren Kiwanis Club’s beer tent may be a destination.

Complement that cold drink with a savory treat from Detroit Wing Co. Other food vendors scheduled to be in attendance are Vivio’s, Big Boy, Fun Food Express, Lindsey Concessions and more.
