Tarpon Springs

Has anyone every been to Tarpon Springs? I'm intrigued by this little town, but I've never been before. I love the though that it's a little bit of Greece transported to Florida. If you've been what did you think? Is it worth a day-trip?

They throw a thing in a river and the young man that gets it gets a reward or something.

Huh? Is it during a festival or something?

It happens on the holiday of Epiphany. The boys jump in after a cross and it brings the winner and his family good luck for the year.
