DULUTH - Across the world it's known as International Worker's Day, but in the U.S., Wednesday was May Day.
Dozens gathered in Duluth to celebrate spring, stand up for the working class and call for universal peace.
Organizers say there hasn't been much of a presence for May Day in Duluth and want to bring attention to the real reason for the celebration.
"It commemorates the Haymarket massacre in Chicago when they were fighting for the eight hour work day. So, we think it's a pretty important thing to remind people and a good thing to celebrate," said Zach Sias, with the North East Area Labor Council.
The festivities ranged from information tables and workshops to a May Day pole dance.
