Founded in 2020 by a group of avid fishermen native to the island of Grand Bahama; the goal is to showcase the skill it takes to be a true angler and experience what it's like to find the Big Fish. BattleGround Bahamas embraces the world-class offshore fishing community by promoting comradery through competition.
As fellow members of the Grand Bahama community, we have teamed up with GB Rotary Club and will assist with a donation to the GB Rotary Disaster Relief Committee.
We look to provide a Fun, Family Friendly atmosphere for the whole community, and promote safe boating practices while bringing back the excitement of a tournament to the island. This will also serve as a platform to spread awareness of our current ecological concerns throughout the 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. 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.

This holiday was granted to slaves the day after Christmas, when they were given the boxes left over from their master’s gifts. These boxes usually were sent from England and were well-crafted from fine wood. Hence the holiday is known as Boxing Day.
Junkanoo parades take place on some islands to commemorate the day.
