Flora-Bama's Mullet Toss Is A National Treasure

By: Grant Marek

First off, the Flora-Bama Interstate Mullet Toss is NOT an event where people throw fantastic '80s hairstyles across the Florida-Alabama border.

That would be ridiculous.

Nope, the Flora-Bama Interstate Mullet Toss is an event where people way more reasonably throw dead mullet fish across the Florida-Alabama border.

In front of 100,000.

On the last full weekend in April (so April 28-30, 2017).

As part of the self-proclaimed Gulf Coast's Greatest Beach Party in Pensacola, Florida.

The event, which's hosted by state-line straddler Flora-Bama Lounge and Oyster Bar has been going down for more than three decades, and includes a host of other weekend activites like a women's bikini contest AND a men's bikini contest.

Fire emoji.

Here's what you need to know if you wanna get in on some mullet flangin':

- It's $15 enter and that'll get you a t-shirt, plus a portion of your entry will go to a bunch of awesome local charities like the Boys & Girls Club (they raise ~$40K every year)

- You have to submit a registration form at the beach

- The mullet fish weigh about a pound, and you can throw them however you want, provided you don't leave the 10-foot throwing circle at any point whatsoever

- All of the dead mullets are fed to the birds once the thing is over and done with

- There are 8 age group categories for the Mullet Toss and the Grand Prize for each division wins a trophy, a Flora-Bama gift certificate, and "any other crap we find laying around"

If for nothing else, do it for the other crap they find laying around.
