The Houston Summer Boat Show will be held Wednesday through Sunday at the NRG Center.

The show will feature recreational boats that include fishing boats, ski/wakeboarding boats, kayaks and pontoon boats. There also will be more than 100 exhibits with fishing gear, watersports accessories, electronics for boating, patio furniture, vacation getaways, and clothing and jewelry.

The Bass Tub, an 18-wheeler-sized fish tank filled with live bass, will be the site of fishing demonstrations.

For children, there will be Fish-O-Rama, a boat show tradition and a way to catch a fish, and Bubble Runners, a giant human hamster ball that glides, skips and spins across the water.

The Miss Geico racing team will make its inaugural appearance at the show, and offshore racing fans and boat enthusiasts from around the world can see the 48-foot catamaran raceboat, which weighs more than 12,000 pounds.
