The Houston Summer Boat Show takes place June 12-16 at the NRG Center, with more than 500 boats on display, along with campers and personal watercraft, access to industry experts and family-friendly activities. There will also be deals on boats, electronics, gear, apparel and more.
“As the Houston summer approaches, one of the best ways to beat the heat is to get out on the water,” Ken Lovell, president of the show, said in a statement. “Houston is a big market for boating with about 200 lakes across Texas plus the Gulf of Mexico located just 50 miles south. If you’ve ever wanted to own a boat or just learn more about boating, this show is a great place to start.”
In addition to 9 acres of exhibits, the show will include a kids area with bungee jumping, inflatable sides and more. At Fish-O-Rama, children can catch a rainbow trout while adults watch fishing demonstrations at the 4,000-gallon Bass Tub.
The show runs from 1 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday and Friday, and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday. For the weekend, the show opens at 10 a.m. and closes at 8 p.m. on Saturday; Sunday hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets are $12 for adults and $5 for kids ages 6 to 12.
