Tarpon Springs Epiphany Celebration

Epiphany tarpon springsAs you pass the courtyard of St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in downtown Tarpon Springs you won’t help but notice a statue of a soaked young Epiphany diver gazing at the cross that he just retrieved from the Spring Bayou. The Epiphany celebration was brought to Tarpon Springs as many Greek men, primarily from the Dodecanese Islands, found work here diving for the abundance of natural sponges found in the area. In continuing this occupation, they brought their families and deep religious beliefs with them to Florida.  Since the sponge industry has persevered, so has Tarpon Springs strong Greek heritage. Since 1920 brave young Greek-American males between the ages of 16 and 18 dive into the frigid waters of the Spring Bayou each January in hopes of retrieving the coveted Epiphany Cross. On this day, a Divine Liturgy begins the event followed by a procession to the bayou where the archbishop blesses the waters and casts the white Epiphany Cross into the bayou as a dove of the same color is released. Approximately fifty young men dive for their chance at what the local Tarpon Springs residents believe will ensure a year of good luck and blessing. The dive for the cross is the highlight of the day’s events. Once a diver finds the cross the crowd applauds and cheers with happiness. The boy is then carried by the procession and is blessed at a short service back at the church. This event, held traditionally in Greece, has become just as famous in the Tarpon Springs area, and is attended by many families living Tarpon Springs and its surrounding areas.
