You all know where to find Dodecanese Blvd., right?

It’s off Alternate 19 in the heart of Tarpon Springs; downtown is just a shuttle ride away. Probably more parking available downtown but we always like to take our chances on the Sponge Docks area. Funny thing is, we always find a spot. There is a FREE shuttle that will move you around town during the event (between Downtown and The Sponge Docks).

History of the Sponge Docks

To begin with, let’s talk about how the Sponge Docks came to be.
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.

Lastly, what is a sponge; well, according to Wikipedia they are:

Animals of the phylum Porifera. They are multicellular organisms that have bodies full of pores and channels allowing water to circulate through them, consisting of jelly-like mesohyl sandwiched between two thin layers of cells. Wikipedia 

The district hosts monthly festivals and events including the Fine Art Festival, Seafood Festival, Night In The Islands, Snow Place Like Tarpon Avenue and an Antique Car Show.
