Sir Randol Fawkes established Labour Day in 1961, and it is now named in his honor.
This holiday, on the first Monday in August, celebrates the emancipation of slaves in the British colonies in 1834. It is celebrated with a Junkanoo Rush-out, a day of beaching, sailing, and regattas in most islands.
The second Monday in October, formerly known as "Discovery Day" or "Columbus Day," has now been dedicated to honoring Bahamian national heroes since 2013.
You can enjoy a variety of prizes and surprises, while having a Halloween fun time.
