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.
This holiday marks the beginning of the beach picnicking season for Bahamians. There are also many cookouts in public parks on the Nassau waterfront; homecomings and regattas are held in some Out Islands.
This church fair is held on Easter Monday each year as a fundraiser for St. Bartholomew. There will be delicious Bahamian food and non-alcoholic drinks on sale. Activities include Junkanoo, a Kamalami Boat Race, games, lots of beach fun for the entire family, and a major raffle.
