Rain threat pushes Sunday's Epiphany Glendi indoors

TARPON SPRINGS — The threat of rain has dashed hopes that this year's Glendi, a Greek festival that follows the annual Epiphany cross dive, could be held in Craig Park.

Event organizers announced today that the Glendi will instead be held in the Spanos Pappas Community Center Theophilos Hall, 348 N Pinellas Ave. Organizers had planned to hold the Glendi at Craig Park this year, adjacent to Spring Bayou, where the cross dive is held.

Admission to the Glendi is free, with food, beverages, Greek pastries and other items for sale.

Bay News 9 meteorologist Juli Marquez predicted a 60 percent chance of rain Sunday, with high temperatures in the low- to mid-70s. The possibility for showers increases in the afternoon as a cold front makes its way toward Florida.
