There was also a day of wellness where the country was encouraged to get up and exercise to promote health and wellness. July 7 was National Bahamian Pride Day and the Prime Minster’s Legacy Ball celebrating the founding fathers of the Bahamas.
“The expectation is to make sure that the visitors have an enriched, rewarding experience and they continue to return to the Bahamas,” Latia Duncombe, Director General of Tourism, Investments and Aviation said.
As for the Bahamas’ independence day, the country will hold Jubilee celebrations where church bells will ring at noon.. Cowbells and goat-skinned drums will also ring out across the Bahamas for its Rush event. There will also be a Family Fun Day and state reception.
Last month, the Bahamas Tourism Board, along with the country’s Deputy Prime Minster Chester Cooper, traveled to Los Angeles to celebrate the launch of the first-ever non-stop flights from LA to Nassau.
“We want the Bahamas to be the initial stamp in first-time traveler’s passports,” DPM Cooper said.
But we also look forward to welcoming back our repeat visitors who continue to choose us for their Caribbean vacation.”
