Mullet Festival Clears The Confusion

NICEVILLE, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One fishy Florida festival is clearing the air on the hairy issue that’s surrounded its title.

The 31st Annual Boggy Bayou Mullet Festival is swimming into Niceville, Florida, this weekend (Oct. 19-21), and spokesman Lannie Corbin says there’s been some confusion about the fishy fest.

He says, “Everyone around here knows that the festival is about the mullet fish. It’s people who aren’t from here that show up and get confused, thinking it’s for the mullet hairstyle.”

According to Corbin, the mullet mix-up started in 1992, when mullet-rocking country star Billy Ray Cyrus headlined the event, but since then, Corbin has buried the hairy hatchet.

Says Corbin, “I don’t blame him. I give him credit for causing the confusion and attention, but I wouldn’t change it if I could.”

Despite a love for the “Achy Breaky Heart” crooner, there’s a different Cyrus that the folks in Niceville would love to see hosting the fish fest.

Says Corbin, “I tried to make contact with Miley Cyrus for the festival, but she’s big time now. She could even sport a mullet if she wanted to.”
