Royal May Day Festival 149th Year 2013

Royal May Day in Knutsford is an annual event which dates back to 1864. The modern day festivals still recreate the customs upon which it is based, including unique traditions such as 'sanding' the streets. May Day in Knutsford earned its 'Royal' title in 1887 courtesy of the then
Prince and Princess of Wales and today attracts thousands of visitors every year.
