April 26th, 27th, & 28th 2019 WHAT IS A MULLET? Psych! You thought it was a really bad haircut. Technically it is and you will see plenty of those here too. Please, don't hate. A mullet is one of the more popular and plentiful fish indigenous to this area. It is the only fish with a gizzard and is said to possess mystical properties. Known as baitfish on the east coast and a local delicacy here. WHAT IS A MULLET TOSS? It's like a big flash mob on the beach where a fish throwing event breaks out. Word. A Mullet Toss consists of individuals on the beach throwing a mullet, from a 10-foot circle in Florida across the state line into Alabama. Not to mention a great excuse to throw a weekend long party, with lots of fun activities, great music and food! This year's event will feature local celebrities tossing out a few fish at noon, each day (Friday, Saturday & Sunday). WHY TOSS A MULLET? Because anyone with a haircut like that deserves to be tossed. Just kidding, we heart mullets of all kinds. Let's get serious, a contribution for each fish flung will go to Local Youth Charities, including local school education and prevention program from the Community Drug & Alcohol Council, Inc. (CDAC) which offers programs, community support and collaboration to address drug and alcohol abuse, tobacco, mental health issues and violence both in the home and on our streets. Each year, with your help, we raise and contribute over $40,000 to local charities, especially youth organizations on both sides of the state line. WHEN DOES THE ACTUAL TOSSING OF THE MULLET BEGIN? Whenever we sober up or the times below. Whichever comes first. Friday - Sunday: Kids (10am - Noon) Adults (Noon - 4pm) Finals each day at 4pm. Celebrity Tossers at 4:30 PM each day HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO TOSS THE MULLET? $15 and includes a souvenir t-shirt, with portion of proceeds to benefit the Community Drug & Alcohol Council, Inc., local Boys & Girls Clubs, and youth groups on both sides of the line! ARE THE MULLET ALIVE? No but they are really, really friendly. WHAT HAPPENS TO MULLET AFTER THE MULLET TOSS? We feed them to the birds. These guys are totally not hungry. HOW MANY PEOPLE USUALLY COME TO THE MULLET TOSS? A couple of our closest friends over the course of the 3 day weekend. You can see from the pictures WHAT ARE THE RULES FOR TOSSING A MULLET? You will be tossing one whole mullet (approximately 1 lb.) across the FL/AL state line Must submit registration form at the beach. $15.00 Entry Fee to throw the mullet. You will receive our Interstate Mullet Toss t-shirt. The cover to get into the Flora-Bama is different than the fee to throw. NO gloves or sand on mullet allowed.
