We are also very enthusiastic about the Beach Bums Corvette Car Show that will take place on Sunday at the wine festival grounds. This awesome event, featuring hundreds of corvettes, has been happening on LBI for years and is the perfect addition to the weekend! We are telling people to come sample great New Jersey wines, enjoy culinary cuisine from some of LBI’s best restaurants, shop the artisan crafters and enjoy great live music.
