Claire Harwood has been going to the May Day for 35 years and was in the procession in her younger years.
Claire, who now lives in Wilmslow, said: "I bring my own children - it's a tradition, a Knutsford tradition."
Helen Harrison has been coming to the May Day since 1950 and came with her children and grandchildren to this year's festival.
"It's always brilliant and have been going for years," she said.
"The atmosphere is what I enjoy the most."
Knutsford Town Clr Mike Houghton said: "It has been a fantastic day, so many people turned out, I would guess half the town must be out.
"It's fantastic events like this are so well supported 150 years on. Here's to the next 150."
Jordon Massey, from Northwich, told the Guardian he was happy the weather was so good.
"You also get to see lots of people you haven't seen for ages," he added.
"Everyone seems to be here."
Roving reporter Cara Cunningham found out what the spectators thought.
Ben Whiteside, from High Legh, said: "This is my second time to the May Day, it is such a good day out. The atmosphere is the key, I will be here next year, 100%."
