If you have a young family, you may know the dilemma of keeping your kids entertained late in the summer before school begins again.  Many organized sports leagues are done by then, so the Alton Regional Convention and Visitor’s Bureau is launching a series of “kidcations” later this week.

CVB spokesman Jong Cambron tells The Big Z The Cookie Factory at Alton Square will host “Lunch with the Mayor” of Godfrey on Saturday, and come back with another event on August 6.
