May Day Parade in Union Square, New York City, May 1, 1937.

During the 1930s, tens of thousands of people marched in parades celebrating May Day. The festive events were organized by the Communist Party and by a number of left-led unions, and other organizations, and were enhanced by elaborate, colorful floats.
