Labour Day in Wallis and Futuna is celebrated every 1 May, as it is in much of the rest of the world. This is a holiday to celebrate the contributions of workers to the economy and society, and also a time to highlight where progress still needs to be made towards fair and safe working conditions.

With the parents off work and the kids out of school, families in Wallis and Futuna take advantage of the day off.
There may also be some public events, including labour-related parades or protests. And this is the time of year when labour unions and workers demand improved working conditions and better compensation. However, most just relax at home or head to the beach for some fun in the sun.
