We are just two weeks from the annual Mullet Toss at the Flora-Bama Lounge, taking place near our Gulf Coast real estate sales office in Perdido Key. If you live in Orange Beach or along the shores of Northwest Florida, you know this is a must-attend event!

If you have recently purchased a home on the Gulf Coast and are not familiar with this fun event, let us tell you a little about it. First, it has nothing to do with that once-popular (and maybe still popular) bad hairstyle men in the South sometimes sport. It does have everything to do with throwing a slimy fish from the beaches of Florida across the state line into Alabama.

Yes, this is a fish throwing event. Grab your friends and head out to the Flora-Bama where you will find people not only tossing mullet, but also enjoying the ‘Gulf Coast’s Greatest Beach Party’ which will feature live music, delicious food and great drinks. Dance and dine until it’s your turn to stand in the 10-foot circle and try your hand at throwing your dead fish the farthest!

So, while most of this event is just for fun and somewhat ridiculous, it also benefits great local charities throughout our community. In fact, a portion of the fish-tossing fees charged will be donated to local youth charities that support drug and alcohol education. The Flora-Bama Mullet Toss event kicks off on April 24 and goes each day throughout the weekend. We hope to see you out there and good luck flinging that fish!
