There are signs the tourism business may be on the upswing in Clark County. Tourist-related revenue there is up by more than $100 million since 2010. That growth is also fueling a welcome boost in hiring in Springfield, as new businesses and attractions pop up, enticing visitors to spend.

What’s behind the positive numbers?

It’s First Friday at the Hatch Artist Studios in Springfield.
