The island of Pitcairn celebrates January 23, the day the survivors of the Bounty mutiny landed to set up a life for themselves.  The day is celebrated with a reenactment of the landing with model boats and then the people will walk the path that was followed by the original people.  The Bounty Day is also celebrated on Norfolk Island but on the day the Pitcairners landed there due to not being able to make a sustainable life on the original island, this is done on June 8th.
