The Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation will host a Kids Corner at the Miami International Boat Show with interactive fishing and boating activities for families.

The RBFF will hold the exhibit in connection with its Take Me Fishing and Vamos A Pescar brands.

Children will have the opportunity to paint a T-shirt with fish patterns and take part in a Lifejacket Relay, among other activities.

RBFF staff will hand out bilingual “Color a Fish” coloring books to visitors who stop by.

Nearly 100,000 people attended the Miami show in each of the last three years, including nearly 6,000 children under the age of 12 in 2015, according to the National Marine Manufacturers Association, the group that holds the event.
