Houston show returns in January


The new year will bring an early start to the 60th annual Houston International Boat, Sport & Travel Show as the 10-day show opens Jan. 2.

The show, which fills the entire floor of NRG Center, will feature powerboats, pontoons, cruisers, fishing boats and personal watercraft, as well as a large selection of campers and travel trailers.

A Stingray Touch Tank and educational presentation will feature live stingrays to see, touch and feed.

For beginner and veteran outdoors enthusiasts, there are dozens of seminars, including expert fishing demonstrations at the giant 5,000-gallon Bass Tub aquarium.

Children’s activities include Fish-O-Rama and Bubble Runners, an activity that allows children to crawl into a giant inflatable bubble that skips and glides across a pool of water.
