Formerly known as "Discovery Day" or "Columbus Day," this holiday has now been dedicated to honoring Bahamian national heroes since 2013. An official National Heroes Day ceremony is held with a keynote speech by the Prime Minister, and heroes from a cross-section of civil society are celebrated with a week of activities. Many people enjoy the day with family gatherings and beach picnics.
