27th Annual Mullet Festival hosted in Lillian today
LILLIAN, Ala. -- Labor Day weekend means another Mullet Festival in Lillian, Alabama. The 27th annual Mullet Festival kicked off Monday morning at the Lillian Community Club. The family friendly event is hosted by the Optimist Club of Perdido Bay. The day featured a 5k run, a bake sale, vendors and of course, the famous mullet fling. Just in case you want to start practicing for next year, here are a few ways the pros throw a mullet.
"People wad them up like a baseball. Roll them up and people put dirt on them, find sand and put that on because they think that it flies through the air better" says Duane Whitmyer an expert mullet tosser.
All proceeds from the festival, benefit Optimist programs for local youth.
