Swimsuit festival…wow

So this season the spotlight is not just on the Super Bowl festivities, get for what about to take place now. It just real and things are going to get sexy and exotic in Houston, since Sport Illustrated Swimsuit are throwing their first ever festival, the “VIBES” by Sports Illustrated Swimsuit featuring an all-star line-up of chefs and musical performers, and off course with the beautiful and sexy models of Sports Illustrated models attending the festival.

Here’s some good news for the Houston people, Houstonian Simone Biles who joined her fellow gold-medal-winning teammate Aly Raisman for a swimsuit shoot with photographer James Macari around Houston at the World Champions Center (where Biles trains, in spring), is one of the models who’s attending this event.

“We couldn’t be more excited to bring the SI Swimsuit experience to America’s fourth-largest city less than two weeks after the Super Bowl, the biggest event in sports, takes place in Houston,” said MJ Day, SI Swimsuit editor and holder of one of America’s top dream jobs, in a press release. He also stated that this year’s festival is going to be a bomb, with all new and expanded experience, just giving fans a cultural festival, and bringing the best food, music and more.

This event can’t be missed, after all it’s the first ever festival in Houston, so expectations must be really big, not attending this event is just inevitable.

the event is going to take place around Feb. 17 and 18, Tickets went on sale today, and start at $35 for general admission, with VIP passes going for $150 each day (or both for $250).
