Gulf Coast Festivals & Events

Countless friends and families, sons, daughters and aunts, moms and dads enjoy the Alabama / Florida Gulf Coast each year.  The emerald-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico creates an amazing backdrop for the sugar-white sand beaches that line our coast.  It's a perfect place to hold parties and gatherings and two of the largest we have in Alabama, is the Hangout Music Festival and the Flora Bama Mullet Toss.  On the Florida Panhandle, annual events such as the Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic, Billy Bowlegs Pirate Festival and Seabreeze Jazz Festival draw in thousands to the Gulf Coast.

The Flora Bama Interstate Mullet Toss 2021

Get ready for a revived Mullet Toss!! The 35th Annual Interstate Mullet Toss will be held April 23, 24, and 25, 2021 and as usual, the Flora Bama's annual competition will award prizes to the men and women who can throw a fish the farthest. While fish are pretty streamline and slightly resemble a football, all bets are off when they fly through the air.
