PORT ARANSAS – Business leaders in Port Aransas have set a goal ​for the coastal town to be largely rebuilt and ready for tourists during spring break 2018.

Port Aransas received some of the worst damage from Hurricane Harvey in late August 2017.

Port Aransas Chamber of Commerce President Jeff Hentz said they want repairs close to 100 percent by the beginning of the summer, with a goal of having 85 percent of business and more than half of the hotels, condos and vacation homes ready by spring break 2018.

If spring break 2018 is the town's grand opening, the Whooping Crane Festival will be its soft opening. 

The annual birding festival draws hundreds of birders to Port Aransas to catch a glimpse of the endangered crane.

Port Aransas learned that it has been selected to host the Texas rounds of competitions for the Food Network's World Food Championships in September 2018.
