When is National Heroes Day in Cayman Islands?

National Heroes Day is a public holiday celebrated in the Cayman Islands on the fourth Monday in January.

Unlike other National Heroes Days in the Caribbean, the same people aren't celebrated on this day each year.

Instead, a committee comprised of public and private sector representatives meets to chose the theme for the following year's holiday.

Different award categories are then established with the public able to nominate suitable individuals. The National Heroes Day committe then decide on who are deserving recipients of the awards.

The theme choosen for 2017 is Tourism, honouring the important role that business sector plays in the economy of the Cayman Islands.

The 2016 theme was agriculture with over 300 people being honoured for their contribution to farming in the Cayman Islands.
