Tarpon Springs is a fun place to be especially on the Sponge Docks even if it’s not Hippie Fest. Hippie Fest is just one of the many fun things offered by the Tarpon Springs Chamber of Commerce and the Tarpon Springs Merchants Association. The Tarpon Springs Merchants Association brings us Hippie Fest each year. There’s always some fun thing happening whether it’s Arts & Craft Fairs, Greek Fiestas, or lots of interesting Festivals. And there are some great restaurants on offer too including Greek and seafood.
How Did We Get Sponge Docks?
First, in 1887 the railroad service to New York began and created a boom for Tarpon Springs. The gorgeous Victorian Mansions you see around the Bayous were built by wealthy people who came to visit and fell in love with the area. In due time, they helped establish churches, schools, businesses, and hotels (so that more wealthy tourists could visit and fall in love).
Secondly, Lots of Sponges grew in the waters around Tarpon Springs; a huge sponge industry developed when the Greek divers came. At the same time, the Greek families opened shops and restaurants, pastry shops and markets.
