Twenty Years of Celebrating Anderson
Anderson County, S.C. – An annual community event, Celebrate Anderson unites our County’s eleven cities and towns for a day of festivities that concludes with an evening of concerts and a patriotic fireworks celebration the Sunday before Labor Day.
The Celebrate-Fun-Zone, which includes large inflatables and activities brings together families and youth for a fun filled afternoon. “Celebrate-Fun-Zone gives our families and visitors a fun afternoon prior to the concerts, said Anderson County Administrator Rusty Burns.
