With the unique arts and culture of our exceptional areas, art expos, plein air artists, live theater, and wine and music festivals satisfy the creative souls. For the athletes, our climate is perfect for foot races, duathlons and triathlons, as well as fantastic beach volleyball tournaments.

Interstate Mullet Toss and Gulf Coasts Greatest Beach Party
April 26 - April 28
Interstate Mullet Toss & Gulf Coast’s Greatest Beach Party ~ Perdido Key, FL Events by Southern
Looking for something exciting to do while staying on the Gulf Coast? The Flora-Bama Mullet Toss is the way to go! Don’t miss out on the best annual event on the Lost Key, the Interstate Mullet Toss & Gulf Coast’s Greatest Beach Party at the Flora-Bama! Warm up your throwing arm and take your shot at tossing a mullet (yes, the fish!). The event is welcome to the public and if you want to toss a mullet there is a $15.00 entry fee. The entry fee also pays for a Mullet Toss t-shirt.
A mullet is considered a local delicacy here and is known as bait fish on the east coast. It is one of our more popular and plentiful fish indigenous to this area. Some people say the fish has mystical properties. The Mullet Toss consists of people throwing a dead mullet from a ten-foot circle in Florida across the state line into Alabama. The weekend also includes great food and music available for the whole family!
Proceeds from the event go to the Community Drug and Alcohol Council, Inc., local Boys and Girls Clubs, and youth groups on both sides of the state line. The Flora-Bama Mullet Toss is an event you cannot see anywhere else!
Meanwhile, don’t forget to reserve your spot on the sand for this fun weekend! Reserving a vacation condo in Perdido Key is the way to go. Stay at Beach Colony 3A in Perdido Key for dazzling Gulf views and exciting resort-style amenities. You’re just minutes away from all the fun at the Flora-Bama, too!
