Houston show set for January

The 2010 Houston International Boat, Sport & Travel Show, which features more than 1,000 powerboats, luxury cruisers, ski boats, personal watercraft, campers and travel trailers, will run Jan. 8-17 at the Reliant Center.

The 10-day show is touted as "Houston's biggest boat sale," as most exhibitors will offer special preseason savings and discounts at the show, organizers say.

In addition to more than 16 acres of boats and campers, exhibitors will include outfitters from Alaska to Costa Rica, fishing guides and gear, the latest in marine electronics, skiing and wakeboarding accessories, art, clothing and more.

Another popular attraction is the show's Fish-O-Rama, where kids of all ages can try their hand at reeling in a prize catch.
