Use the Tarpon Springs Patch Weekend Planner to shape your plans this Saturday and Sunday.
There are no official city events going down this weekend, but that doesn't mean Tarpon Springs isn't loaded with options for locals.
Super Bowl Sunday in Tarpon Springs
As the San Francisco 49ers face the Baltimore Ravens, Mulligans Irish Pub will be hosting a watch party. The party starts at 5:30 p.m. and for $15 patrons can enjoy an array of appetizers. Happy Hour begins at noon. Click here for more details on the event.
Whether you're in it for the commercials or you're a diehard fan, the game will be shown at a number of Tarpon Springs establishments.
If you prefer to stay in for Super Bowl, throw your own celebration with some of these touchdown dance worthy recipes.
Not into American football?
How about a nice stroll on the beach at one of Tarpon's powdery white locales? Sunset Beach, located at the western end of Gulf Rd., is an island oasis that offers free parking while Fred Howard Park's appeal is worth the $5 parking for the day. So, grab some sunscreen and toss some towels in the trunk because the weather promises to be in cooperation with this one.
Grab a blanket, pack a lunch and head out to one of Tarpon Springs' natural wonders. Choose from Fred Howard Park or Anderson Park for all your picnic-ing needs. Invite some friends and make it a family affair. Don't forget the football!
In the mood for some retail therapy this weekend? Visit an array shops on Tarpon Ave. and Dodecanese Blvd. From specialty goods and sponges to antiques and books, the city has a lot to offer when it comes to shopping local.
Remember to stop by the Tarpon Sunday Market from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. The weekly event is gaining popularity and offers a good time, every time.
