Indeed, so many people have registered to hold events that council bosses have rescheduled its event in the town centre to Saturday, June 9 so everyone can be involved.
As well as the dozens of street parties and barbecues, there are also some unusual celebrations taking place with wizardry events and body zorbing.
Clr Terry O’Neill, leader of the council, said: ”Warrington’s response to the jubilee has been tremendous and we are so proud that so many people are taking the time and effort to come together and celebrate this historic event.
“Neighbours, family, and friends will congregate and celebrate in style at what looks to be a spectacular day for Warrington.”
The total number of street parties in town is 81 - one of the highest figures in the north west.
The giant town centre extravaganza will take place the following Saturday, June 9 between 10am and 4pm with spitfires, a parade of giant queens and much more.
