May Day 2018 in Slovenia

We are going to Slovenia next May, arriving right at the end of April. I have read online that Slovenes really celebrate May Day: with bonfires the night before, brass bands in the morning, and erecting May Day poles that boys try to climb. Sounds like fun. My question: are we likely to see more of this in smaller towns and villages? We had been planning to start the trip in Ljubljana.

Not sure. I was in Rovinj, Croatia (a small town not far from Slovenia) on May 1 a few years ago, and they indeed had a brass band (more like the local high school band) playing in the town center in the morning. But, it did not feel like the town had completely shut down to celebrate the holiday or anything.
