Dallas show returns in late January

The Dallas and Fort Worth Winter Boat Expo will take place Jan. 31-Feb. 9 at the Dallas Market Hall.

Admission is free on Feb. 3 for each person who donates four canned food items to the North Texas Food Bank.

Presented by the United Boat Dealers of North Texas, the DFW Boat Expo will have more than 450 all-new 2014 boat and watercraft models on display and available for purchase from 20 North Texas boat dealers on 10 consecutive days. Nearly 100 vendors will have booths.

New this year, the winter expo will open at noon Monday through Thursday for the convenience of the business lunch crowd. Food vendors will have lunch selections for purchase.

“Boating is an affordable, family-friendly recreational activity, and the winter boat show is the best time of year to buy a boat,” expo director Bron Beal said in a statement. “All new models will be on display, with some models being unveiled for the first time. And great financial incentives are available.

“Visitors will have an opportunity to view the latest trends in boats at the expo, including boats designed for lake surfing, boats with a living room/patio for entertaining, more affordable personal watercraft and high-tech options like Bluetooth and joystick steering,” Beal said.

The expo is one of few private boat shows in the country and is the only show in the North Texas region and Oklahoma City.
