There is a traditional Labour Day march in the town of Basseterre on Saint Kitts annually. This is often the scene of political speeches. The marchers ultimately rally at Pasty Allers Field for speeches and other events.
There may be other parades as well on Labour Day, and there are always some special events here and there. There may also be an occasional protest.
For the average person in Saint Kitts and Nevis, Labour Day is just a day off work and a chance to get out and do something. Many go to the beach, while others picnic, nature hike, or go boating.
