Chub Cay Fishing Tournament

This release-only billfish tournament, organized by Chub Cay Club, will be held on the weekend after Easter. It will be capped at 20 boats, and only Club members and a very limited number of guests will be allowed to participate. There is usually great fishing in the area at that time of year.

Guy Fawkes Competition

This historical Guy Fawkes competition will feature judging of the Best Guy and Dancing of the Guy will be the highlight of the night. Those in attendance will also have the opportunity to feast on delicious Bahamian food and drinks and gather around a huge bonfire with family and friends.

Majority Rule Day

Majority Rule Day became a public holiday in 2014. It commemorates The Bahamas gaining majority rule for the first time on January 10, 1967, symbolizing the promise of equality, a level playing field, and fair play for all Bahamians.

Along with the emancipation from slavery in 1836, and gaining Independence from Great Britain in 1973, the achievement of Majority Rule is considered one of the most important events in the history of the country.

Good Friday

This religious holiday marks the end of the Lenten season and is the first day of a long holiday weekend which includes the following Monday after Easter Sunday. On this holy day most Bahamians attend church services and serve fish as their main meal of the day.
