FLORABAMA INTERSTATE MULLET TOSS

The Flora-Bama Lounge and Oyster Bar is located on Perdido Beach west of Pensacola. 

It is on the Florida-Alabama state line, hence its catchy name.

The Interstate Mullet Toss is an annual event that has become one of the biggest beach parties anywhere.

Its organizers decided that tossing a mullet is as good a reason as any to have a beach party.

Contestants in this event stand in a ten foot diameter circle in the Florida beach sand and throw a dead mullet over the state line into the state of Alabama.

Whoever throws the fish the farthest wins the contest. Don't confuse the fish with the bad haircut a lot of misguided men choose to wear.

Some of the proceeds of the entrance fees go to local youth charities. Most years these contributions add up to more than $20,000.

The event is held the last full weekend of April every year.
