The fifth annual Coastal Bend Travel Fair will be presented on Wednesday, Jan. 26, at the Aransas Pass Civic Center. This 2011 Travel Fair is sponsored by the Texas Coastal Bend Regional Tourism Council and is an opportunity for representatives from the 18 counties who make up the council to join together to showcase the diverse tourism opportunities available to the Coastal Bend Winter Texan visitors and area residents.

The South Texas Coastal Bend already is home to cowboys, historic missions and museums, birding, surf and freshwater fishing, a zoo featuring native and exotic animals and so much more. Join us in Aransas Pass and learn more about all this fun and adventure.

The Travel Fair will be open to the public with free admission from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Aransas Pass Civic Center, located at 700 W. Wheeler in Aransas Pass, will be filled with a variety of booths representing tourism attractions from around the Coastal Bend.

The Travel Fair will feature approximately 40 vendors, representing tourism and outdoor recreational adventures. These vendors will also include health care professionals and a book store as well as RV dealer from Rockport offering tours of several of their motor homes. Guides will also be there to book your deep-sea fishing adventure, a kayak fishing and scenic tour or personalized guided fishing excursion. Food and drinks, including a hot lunch, will be on sale throughout the day.

An exhibit of past winning entries of the Coastal Bend Wildlife Photo Contest will also be displayed.

A highlight of the event will include door prizes given away throughout the day, donated by the various featured tourism attractions and other vendors. No purchase is necessary, but you must be present to win. Over 100 door prizes were given away during the 2010 event including fishing trips, an overnight stay at a coastal B&B and golfing accessories.

Plan on attending the Jan. 26 Coastal Bend Travel Fair to learn more about the area’s treasure trove of tourism attractions, win some door prizes and have lunch.
