ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (AP) — Once canceled amid coronavirus concerns, the annual Mullet Toss is back on again at a popular roadhouse at the Florida-Alabama state line.
In the annual event at the Flora-Bama Lounge, contestants throw dead fish from a point in Florida across the state line, vying for distance records.
AL.com reports that the April event was postponed this year due to the spread of COVID-19. Now, it’s set for Oct. 23-25.
Co-owner Cameron Price says the organizers are taking advantage of the loosening of Florida coronavirus restrictions. Price adds that it’s an outdoor event in breezy conditions.
Price says free masks will be available but masks won’t be mandatory.
“We are not mandating that anybody wear masks out there,” he said. “If you want to come here and wear a mask, you’re welcome to come here and wear a mask. Nobody’s going to look at you funny.”
The announcement of the rescheduled Mullet Toss comes during a tumultuous year for the venue.
In March, Flora-Bama owners shut down the bar and several related businesses — even before it was mandated by Florida.
In the ensuing months, it operated at times as a bar, at times as a restaurant, depending on state regulations.
Hurricane Sally in also caused a brief shutdown but caused only minor damage.
