During the last full weekend in April of each year, the famous Flora-Bama Lounge and Oyster Bar hosts the Interstate Mullet Toss and Gulf Coast’s Greatest Beach Party. The event brings people together for a giant party on the beach at the state line between Florida and Alabama while they participate in the Mullet Toss—not the iconic haircut like you might be imagining, but instead a type of local fish that is known for its mystical properties and its status as a delicacy—for charity. When you take part in the mullet toss, you throw a dead mullet over the state line to see if your mullet can get the farthest!
