2018 Interstate Mullet Toss & Gulf Coast’s Greatest Beach Party
The Interstate Mullet Toss & Gulf Coast’s Greatest Beach Party is the party of the year at the Flora-Bama. The event is exactly what it sounds like – tossing a mullet over the Florida-Alabama state line to see who gets the farthest! The event is so popular that people from all over travel to participate in the Mullet Toss.
The Mullet Toss and party take place from April 27 to 29. The fish are tossed Friday at noon, and at 10 AM on Saturday and Sunday. Then, the toss is followed by the Gulf Coast’s Greatest Beach Party. It’s a weekend full of fun activities, great music, and food!
Popular and plentiful in the area, mullet are believed to possess mystical properties. Make a wish when you throw your mullet! Not to mention – it’s considered a delicacy along the Gulf Coast!
Not only is the event a reason to have tons of fun, it’s also charitable. For each mullet tossed, a donation will be made to local youth charities, including school education and prevention program from the Community Drug & Alcohol Council (CDAC). The CDAC offers programs and community support to address drug and alcohol abuse, mental health issues, and violence at home and on the streets. Because of this, the Flora-Bama has contributed over $40,000 to local charities in Florida and Alabama.
