The Houston Summer Boat Show kicks off Wednesday and runs through Sunday at the NRG Center.

Organizers expect attendance is expected to be strong as it has been a healthy year for boat sales in the Houston area due to the combination of an improving local economy and the replacement of boats damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Harvey.

The show features boats for fishing, water sports and for just spending some time on the water, organizers said.

In addition, there will be exhibits showcasing fishing and water sports gear and accessories, electronics for boating, outdoor furniture, vacation getaways, and clothing and jewelry.

Many boat show traditions will return this year, including demonstrations at the Bass Tub, a 4,000 gallon, 18-wheeler-sized fish tank filled with live bass.

Children can catch a rainbow trout at Fish-O-Rama and take advantage of all the fun activities at Kids Zone, including bungee jumping and a giant inflatable slide.
