Wednesday, May 1’s Lowdown

To commemorate Wednesday’s long-celebrated workers’ holiday, several of Humboldt’s social justice-oriented organizations have banded together to schedule a midday May Day March and Celebration. 

 The event is scheduled to coalesce at the Humboldt County Courthouse at noon before attendees beat feet to the Old Town Gazebo at 1 p.m. Once gazebo-installed, the rally will progress into its speechifying section from 2-4 p.m. A slew of bands will reportedly close the evening. 

Full details here. More Humboldt Wednesday joys in your Lowdown listings below.
