CVB spokesman Stephanie Tate tells The Big Z the event Tuesday at the Alton train station was a rousing success.

She believes this will be an event that returns to the Kidcation calendar next year.  The CVB is coordinating with a number of attractions around the Riverbend to offer special promotions during the 10-day period that wraps up Sunday.
