The Illinois Bureau of Tourism "Illinois Road Show" made a stop in Kankakee Monday afternoon.
Deputy Director Jen Hoelsle (Hole-zl) said the stop was part of a five-day, 17-stop road show to thank the local Convention and Visitor's Bureaus that helped the state bring in a record breaking number of visitors last year. Hoelsle says Kankakee County is doing well.
Hoelsle, who's Bureau is responsible for the "Little Abe" commercials, says the state will continue to work to bring more tourism to the area.
