The towns annual Boggy Bayou Mullet festival starts tomorrow (Oct. 21) and spokesman Lannie Corbin says people have been confusing the fish for the hairstyle ever since Billy Ray Cyrus performed at the event back in 1992.
Still, he stresses the festival is all about the mullet fish and not the business-in-front, party-in-back hairstyle, Corbin says many people still sport the mullet hairdo at the event and not as a joke.
Says Corbin: Theres a lot of mullets down her in Niceville and whether theyre doing it in the spirit of the festival or thats just their hair I dont know.
