Even without a special event, the border at Pensacola, Florida and Orange Beach, Alabama is a famous one for its is the site of the Flora-Bama. 

The Flora-Bama Lounge and Package (aka The Flora-Bama or “THE BAMA”), located on Perdido Key in Pensacola, adjacent the Alabama/Florida state line. It is a honky-tonk, oyster bar, beach bar, and Gulf Coast cultural landmark, touted as being America’s “Last Great Roadhouse”. The Flora-Bama takes its name from its location on the Florida-Alabama border line, and  lies in both Alabama and Florida with the bar sitting right on the line.

O this last weekend a legendary place becomes even more memorable.

They are holding the 31st annual Interstate Mullet Toss. In this event, fish throwers compete to see who can toss a dead, one pound mullet the farthest, starting from a 10-foot-diameter circle in Alabama into the state of Florida. More.
