This traditional festivity that is highly appreciated among Cubans could not be held on May 1 due to adverse weather conditions on the Caribbean island.
At 7:00 am local time, squares and parks were filled with thousands of Cubans who came out to ratify their commitment to defending their Revolution and the country's sovereignty.
The May Day's main event took place at the Havana's boardwalk where over 100,000 people gathered.

The tweet reads, "President Miguel Diaz-Canel Bermudez, accompanied by the Revolution Palace's workers, headed towards the event for International Workers' Day on the boardwalk in the Cuban capital."
From this scenario, Ulises Guilarte, the secretary of the Cuban Workers Confederation (CTC), pointed out that Cubans fight with their own strength and talent to overcome the difficulties caused by the U.S. economic blockade and harassment.
Cuban workers are focused on "a real economic battle" to produce more food, earn foreign currency for the country, strengthen socialist state companies, and increase foreign investment, the CTC leader said.
"Let's continue putting our hands and hearts to the Homeland. Let's continue facing each challenge with the same firmness that has brought us here, with the conviction that we will achieve victory," Guilarte emphasized.
