Posted on April 7, 2016

FloraBama-300x224If you have recently purchased a home in Perdido Key or Orange Beach real estate, you may have begun hearing a buzz about the mullet toss or how it’s almost mullet toss time. And, you may be thinking “What?”

Yes, it’s almost time for the annual Mullet Toss and Gulf Coast Greatest Beach Party, an event hosted each year by the Flora-Bama. So, what is the Mullet Toss? Well, it’s not a hair competition, although you might think so if new to the South. It’s where beach-goers line up to see who can toss a fish, a mullet, the farthest and, hopefully, across the state line.

But, let’s back up. There are a few events that lead up to the flinging of fish. The first is the Mullet Man Triathlon on April 16, 2016. Sign up now and see if you can be the fastest to swim, bike and run the course, now in its 20th year. Be sure to stay after for the awesome post-race party at the Flora-Bama. If golf is more your game, register for the Mullet Swing Golf Tournament on April 20, 2016. The event kicks off at 11AM and is a 4 person scramble.

Now it’s time to talk about the Flora-Bama Mullet Toss and Gulf Coast’s Greatest Beach Party, which will take place April 22-24, 2016. During these three days you can enjoy live music, cool drinks and an incredible party on the beach. While there, register and pay $15 to take your shot at throwing a (dead) mullet from the circle and into Florida. There is an overall winner and every day, and you could take home some seriously cool prizes.

If you have never experienced this event, be sure to head out this year and try it out. We will see you there!
