Paris is a traditional focal point of the celebrations on
Labour Day, known as La Fete du Travail in France.
Everything in the city closes except the Eiffel Tower on May 1st, with parades and
demonstrations taking place around the Place de la Bastille.
Across Paris, the exchanging of lily of the valley is a well-known custom on La Fete
Florists throughout the French capital stock up on the flower in the days running up
to the public holiday, as it is traditionally passed between friends and family
members as a token of good luck.
Individual traders and labour organisations can be seen selling lily of the valley
in the streets on May 1st.
As well as using the day to celebrate workers' rights, some groups organise
demonstrations to raise awareness of human rights and other issues.
The Bastille remains a symbol of royal repression in Paris and usually provides the
location for such events.
With its array of bars, restaurants and art galleries, the surrounding area is now
one of the trendiest districts in the city and should offer plenty to keep visitors
occupied on La Fete du Travail.
