May Day march
Hundreds of workers braved intermittent showers today as they joined in the annual May Day Parade celebrations.
The march which started at the Garrison Savannah and ended on Brownes Beach, St Michael, saw a number of adults and children dancing in the streets to the tunes and rhythms of various songs and Pan music as they made their way along the route.
Scores of jubilant residents also lined the streets looking on at the parade, and some even joined in the merriment.
During the march, the hundreds of workers from the private and public sector stopped at the National Insurance Scheme (NIS) buildings in Culloden Road, St Michael and paid respect to former trade union stalwart and National Hero Sir Frank Walcott, who’s statue stands erect at that location.
