The Bahamas' 40th birthday was celebrated in Man-O-War Cay with a day of sports, activities, food, and lots of family fun. Man-O-War has been celebrating the country's independence with a fun sports day since 1974. The day began with sports activities for 16 years and under, at the softball field. The field activities ended with a tug of war: the older men vs. younger men, and older women vs. younger women. The older men and women won this year. It would seem they were older, wiser AND stronger.
