Be here for one of Florida Paradise Coast's quirkiest and most fun festivals. Enjoy fried and smoked mullet and lots of other fresh seafood and "good eats" from a variety of food vendors along with arts and crafts. Great live music and of course, the annual Buzzard Lope dance* contest, culminating with the crowning of the new Buzzard Lope Queen! The Mullet Festival celebrates Old Florida at its finest, and carries on the traditions established by Stan Gober (may he rest in peace!), whose offbeat music was the inspiration for the Buzzard Lope Dance and Queen Contest!
*Inspired by Stan Gober's song, Buzzard Lope, depicting the strange dance that buzzards do as they hover over roadkill.
