Local residents came together this weekend to celebrate the return of the Alderley Edge May Fair, which fittingly took place on the birthday of its inspiration, Christine Munro.
The fun kicked off with a Friday evening of sports and music in the village park, including a junior fun run, football for the grown ups and music for everyone, headlined by Abba tribute band UK Bjorn.
Then on Saturday the parade took place down London Road, despite a few omissions due to isolation issues, led by the May Queen Mia Lamb and her Princess Olivia Wilson.
They were followed by an array of participants including CHYPS, Echo Performing Arts and pupils from Alderley Edge Primary School, along with vintage bikers, retro cars, classic motorcycles, clowns and circus acts.
Throughout the afternoon, the park played host to 76 artisan market stalls, local dance acts, live music, funfair rides, the village dog show, circus workshops and live performance in the tipi.
Paul Marshall, Organising Committee, said "It seemed to me that the village was ready for a party, and we are so grateful for the support that we received this weekend from the local community. Seeing so many familiar faces and feeling a community spirit in one place has lifted us, I am sure, and I would like to thank everyone who attended this weekend.
"We knew that this was going to be a tough May Fair to pull off, but we do have a brilliant team and we were determined to put on the best show that we could."
The team of volunteers were busy cleaning up once the fun had finished on Saturday evening and returned this morning so the park will be back to normal by lunchtime.
