Houston show returns in January

The 50th annual Houston International Boat, Sport and Travel Show, which will feature more than 1,000 powerboats, cruisers, fishing boats and personal watercraft, will start Friday and continue through Jan. 12 at the Reliant Center.

The show, which says it is the largest indoor show on the Gulf Coast, will feature free seminars on topics ranging from kayak fishing fundamentals to getting started in Texas fishing tournaments. The seminars will start on Friday and continue through Jan. 11.

The 10-day show also features campers, travel trailers and outdoor accessories, including fishing tackle and gear. Live fishing demonstrations are planned in a 5,000-gallon Bass Tub.

The show is also child-friendly, with events such as Fish-O-Rama, during which children can catch live fish, and Bubble Runners, where kids can “run” across the water in their own bubble.
