The droves of the betrothed and other potential revelers attending the 10th annual LBI Wedding Road Show and Party Planning Tour, on April 22, will now be able to check out an authentic biplane and a DeLorean – both of which are available to book. As Chelsea Pascoe of By the Sea Media explained on behalf of the Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce, which organizes the Road Show, “The biplane and DeLorean have been used to create unforgettable and unique backdrops for event and wedding photos.”

SOCCC’s annual Road Show consists of a self-guided tour through a variety of venues on and near Long Beach Island, with professionals at the ready to describe how they can help perfect a wedding or party of any type on the Jersey Shore, as well samples, tastings and chances to win giveaways.

For a decade, this free event “has brought thousands of attendees seeking services and venues for their special day, helping to shape the Long Beach Island region into a true wedding and special event destination,” said Pascoe. “This year, for its 10th anniversary, the SOCC has expanded the Road Show to highlight more than just wedding planning, and will offer ideas for a variety of party planning needs, from venues to favors and more.”

NJ Time Machine’s “Back to the Future” DeLorean replica “features light and sound effects and even has a fog machine, making it truly feel as though you are time traveling,” Pascoe noted. The DeLorean will be set up at The Surf City Hotel during the event later this month.

The biplane, courtesy of Jersey Shore Air Adventures, is an exquisitely restored, genuine World War II era 1942 WACO UPF-7. Check out the plane at Daymark, in Barnegat Light. “In addition to using the biplane for photos, you can book it for 20-, 30-, 40- and 50-minute tours of the coast, making for an unforgettable outing or gift for a loved one,” Pascoe noted.

Local establishments opening their doors for this year’s Road Show, in addition to The Surf City Hotel and Daymark, include: the Sea Shell Beach Resort in Beach Haven; the Surf City Yacht Club; the Brant Beach Yacht Club; and Parker’s Garage in Beach Haven.

The Mainland at the Holiday Inn, in Manahawkin, will be the registration and check-in location, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Mainland will also provide breakfast and tours of its wedding venue and guest rooms. Registered attendees will be given a map of participating locations and can depart at their leisure for touring and tastings.

The Road Show runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“In addition to the many prizes and giveaways, there will be an opportunity for all who complete the entire itinerary to enter to win an anniversary overnight package for a luxury stay at The Mainland,” Pascoe noted.

Media sponsors – including, Elegant Bridal, Wedding Set Go, Celebrations Guide and B98.5 FM – will also provide swag to Road Show-ers throughout the tour.
