Houston Summer Boat Show returns in June

The Houston Summer Boat Show will take place June 22-26 at the NRG Center.

The Houston Summer Boat Show will take place June 22-26 at the NRG Center, with country singer Roger Creager returning as a celebrity spokesman.

“The 2016 Houston Summer Boat Show will rock the boat,” Creager said in a statement.

“While longtime avid boaters know that we offer the best in boating with incredible deals on new boats and accessories, newcomers will be pleasantly surprised by the numerous family-friendly activities and opportunities to explore fun, new boats and boating and fishing technology,” Houston show president Ken Lovell said.

Returning to the show is the Bass Tub — a 4,000-gallon, 18-wheeler-sized fish tank filled with live bass for fishing demonstrations.
