  • I am on my way to Tarpon Springs today.

  • Tarpon Springs is about 40 minutes from Tampa, where I lived on.

  • The reason why I'm going to target spring today is because my friend invited me to brunch and then afterwards we're gonna go see the city.

  • I didn't know what that was until I looked it up.

  • And apparently and Tarpon Springs every year around this time in January, it's January 6.

  • Today they celebrate the epiphany, uh, spring by who torments rings.

  • They're supposed to be thousands of people at this event, and tar pit Sprinkles on that big, so I'm guessing it's gonna be pretty crowded.

  • I'm not huge on huge gatherings like this, but it sounds pretty interesting.

  • So I'm excited to kind of see what it's all about.

  • So what they dio is, I think around noon, the archbishop will throw across into the spring value, and 57 young men will go into the dive into the water and hope to get that across.

  • So the epiphany is a centuries old celebration, Um, Commemorating the baptism of Jesus Christ.

  • And after the crosses retrieved afterwards, they're gonna have celebrations.

  • There's gonna be some festivities with food and, uh, other things that I don't know, but, uh, well, we'll find out.

  • Also, Tarpon Springs is a great town.

  • Um, there's a lot of Greek culture there, and it's known for awesome Greek restaurants.

  • And, um, they also are no verse punches there because it used to be a big sponge doc area.

  • Find lots of different sponges.

  • They're little shops.

  • It's a really neat area.

  • My friend lives right by the spring volume.

  • So that's why she's posting this brunch.

  • And I might be over.

  • So I'm going kind of ah, roundabout way to my friend's house.

  • Since she lives right by spring value where the event is going to be held.

  • There's a lot of road closures, so make sure you're gonna go this event to look on, um, their website or there's information if you google it about all the road closures that are happening.

  • So, yeah, I'm just gonna go kind of around to avoid, like, the main area of downtown Tarpon Springs.
