Occupy Seattle and other groups are planning a day-long series of rallies, marches and entertainment to mark May Day -- the internationally recognized celebration on May 1 of workers and the disenfranchised.

Events start in the morning at Westlake Park, and peak in the late afternoon/early evening with a rally outside the Wells Fargo building on 2nd Ave. in downtown.

Transportation officials are already warning that Tuesday's afternoon commute could be messy. Several marches planned for earlier in the day could tie-up downtown roads starting in the late morning and lasting through the afternoon.

Seattle police and Mayor Mike McGinn starting warning on Friday that they believe some groups are planning violent protests to coincide with the traditionally peaceful rallies and marches. 

Below is the list of planned events and marches. KING 5 News will update this as more information is available:
