Texas hurricane Harv calhoun county flip flop festival

The annual Flip Flop Festival returned for the Labor Day weekend at the Bayfront Peninsula Park after a year of absence since Hurricane Harvey.

Last year’s festival was canceled due to Hurricane Harvey, but the city has recovered and was ready to bring Flip Flop back to Port Lavaca 2018. This year’s festival lineup had Loverboy, Tommy Tutone, and more.

Robert Briscoe, Lolita, said he is glad that the festival is back, and it recovered well after Harvey.

“I mean it didn’t get as bad as Rockport, but as bad as it was it came back good. The folks here did a good job.” Briscoe said.

The festival held their annual Fling Flong competition. The contest had three age groups to compete to see who can fling their flip-flop the farthest.

This year’s winners in the kid’s category 8-year-old Kiley Sexton of Seadrift, in the teen competition was 15-year-old, David Coker of Austin, and finally in the adult competition, 16-year-old, Kara Smith of Port Lavaca.

Coker competed in the contest the year before Harvey, but didn’t win, he said. He added that he signed up to see if he could win this year. Coker said he felt really good placing first in his category, and he got a real trophy.

Coker said he’s glad that the festival is back after being canceled last year because of Harvey, and he was worried that the event wasn’t going to return this year.

Smith said she did not expect to place first in the competition, she added that it’s pretty good to have Flip Flop back after Harvey.

“I mean after Harvey it was just terrible,” Smith said. “But having this back it just shows you that we are coming back stronger than ever from Harvey.”
