The Interstate Mullet Toss Beach Party, Triathlon & Golf Classic

The Annual Interstate Mullet Toss at the Florida-Alabama border has been going on for over 30 years. What first started as a small mullet toss event at the Flora-Bama Lounge for kicks among friends has turned into a gigantic annual beach party that attracts tens of thousands from around the country. The party goes on all weekend with live music, food, drinks, dancing, and, of course, mullets (the fish, not the hair, although you might see some of that too). The party has been compared to an adult spring break. The event has also grown to include the Mullet Man Triathlon and the Mullet Swing Golf Classic. The Interstate Mullet Toss and all related events normally take place during the third week of April.

The Mullet Toss
The Flora-Bama mullet-tossing contest normally starts on Friday at noon and continues through Saturday and Sunday. There are prizes for winners up to third place in each division. Children as young as 1-year-old can participate and there's also a contest for seniors 70 and up. There is a small fee of $15 to enter the mullet toss. Parking is $10 per vehicle at the Flora-Bama beach lot, but the Flora-Bama bus picks people up for just $5 at the Publix supermarket in Orange Beach. There are also taxi options. The Flora-Bama Lounge describes the Interstate Mullet Toss as, "a big flash mob on the beach where a fish-throwing event breaks out". Especially if you stay in one of our conveniently located Brett-Robinson condos in Gulf Shores or Orange Beach close to all the mullet tossing action, how can you go wrong? The best location on the coast for the Mullet Toss is Brett-Robinson's beachfront Phoenix X condo, which is next door to the Flora-Bama.

Mullet Man Triathlon
If throwing dead mullets across the state line just isn't strenuous enough for you, you can participate in the Mullet Man Triathlon, which has become an annual event that precedes the Flora-Bama Interstate Mullet Toss. The triathlon kicks off with a 1/2 mile swim in the Gulf of Mexico behind the Flora-Bama Lounge and is then followed by a 17-mile bike ride on the highway going west. The race ends with a 4.2 mile run. Part of the proceeds from the triathlon go to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. The triathlon, as it's being held at the Flora-Bama, will naturally end with a great party. Brett-Robinson offers condo discounts to participants! Check out our specials page when the time is near.

Mullet Swing Golf Classic
The Mullet Swing Golf classic takes place during the week before the Mullet Toss at the Lost Key Golf Club. There's nothing like bragging about getting first place in the golf classic while you drink a bushwacker and throw mullets with your friends. Part of the proceeds from the tournament go to the Multiple Sclerosis Society. Brett-Robinson also offers discounted condo rental rates to Mullet Swing golfers.

Bring your family or a group of friends down for the most unique mullet tossing beach party on the planet and book your stay at a Brett-Robinson Gulf Shores or Orange Beach condo that's big enough for everyone!
