This year Anderson Township is 225 years old. Our annual 4th of July parade was enjoyed by nearly 10,000 spectators. 85 groups with 1000 participants provided the amazing festivities. Plan to join many thousands of residents and guests enjoy the warm weather and colorful entries of the next year's 2019 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 and Happy Birthday Anderson Township. Since 2005.
