Mullet mania is headed to the Burpengary Tavern this weekend.

The venue’s holding its first Mullet Day Event on Saturday after COVID-19 restrictions put paid to the concept in 2020.

Marketing manager Madonna Tidyman says with the business-in-the-front-party-at-the-back hairstyle gaining popularity among sporting stars and entertainers, she was keen to see how locals had embraced it.

“Mullets are for everyone these days – so many football clubs have them and there’s a lot of locals with them,” she laughs.

Mullet Day’s not just about luscious locks – there will be family entertainment, face painting, balloon art, children’s rides and a petting zoo complete with a llama sporting its version of the fabulous ’do.

Loads of entertainment

Adding to the fun will be special guests Creek to Coast’s Scott Hillier and NRL legend Chris Walker.
