October 12th is observed as “National Heroes Day” in the Bahamas to remember and celebrate all of the heroes from all walks of life who have helped make Bahamas free and prosperous throughout its history.

Originally, Discovery Day or Columbus Day was celebrated in the Bahamas this time of year. But controversy over the meaning of Columbus’ discovery led to the replacement of that holiday with National Heroes Day in 2013.
