The Spotlight's on BCM
Local News Media Focus on
Holiday Traditions@BCM
Holiday Traditions@BCM has made its debut and we are excited about all of the local news coverage we have received. BCM Executive Director Laurie Risch spoke with WLWT - News 5 last Saturday and we have had visits from both Local 12 WKRC and WCPO - 9 On Your Side. Holiday Traditions@BCM has grown this 28th year with 250 feet of track and more than 30 guest-activated displays, Wahoo’s Winter Wonderland, a kid-size, animated exhibit based on the children’s book by Kenton Hills author Diana Grady, “The Holiday Adventures of Wiley Wahoo & Me,” plus special Polar Express and Wahoo readings, Santa visits, Charles Dickens Victorian Village display, holiday concerts and more.

Check out these video clips and then come see the trains for yourself!

Holiday Traditions@BCM will be on display until Jan. 5.
