Do they do anything special on Disneyland's anniversary date?

I am planning my first dead of summer trip to DLR resort to coordinate with my birthday (7/15). Planning on returning on 7/17, but wasn’t sure if they had anything special on the anniversary of opening day and if so, is it worth it to extend my trip by one day?

It’s usually not worth extending your trip out. Typically for the smaller anniversaries (like this year’s 63rd), they will just have a bunch of characters line up with balloons and they have a small speech. They usually play Walt Disney’s opening day speech over the speakers and that’s about it. Nothing too crazy. If it occurs during your trip, I’d recommend watching but I also wouldn’t recommend extending a trip just to see it.
