|Last year's celebration of our country's 241st birthday was watched by about 10,000 residents. Almost 90 entries and 1200 representatives of businesses, organizations and neighborhoods took part in the parade. Plan to join many 1000s of residents and guests enjoy the warm weather and colorful entries of the 2018 parade, then stay and enjoy the car Cruise-In and festivities at the newly expanded Anderson Towne Center. The Parade Committee would like to thank all the volunteers, participants, judges and others who worked tirelessly to make this summertime tradition possible. Happy Birthday AMERICA. Since 2005.
