FIND WALDO LOCAL 2024

Waldo is BAAACCCCKKK! We are so excited.

 

Since 2017 we have been bringing the #FINDWALDOLOCAL program to the community thanks to Candlewick Press!

#FindWaldoLocal is an initiative to support local businesses and institutions - and to explore the magical world of Where's Waldo!

 

Starting July 1st, participants can grab a passport at any of the participating locations. Volumes (Waldo headquarters) will have the most passports and we will let you pick those up in the days leading up to July 1.

Participants have the entire month of July to find where Waldo is hiding! We will have a full map and more details as the event nears. We're still finalizing the last few businesses before we send things to the printer.

During the whole month of July, participants will look for Waldo in any of the 25+ locations in the neighborhood. Once a participant finds 10 they will automatically get a Waldo sticker & pin and a $1 off a Waldo book coupon. When they get 20, they are not only entered for a BIG grand prize, but they are guaranteed some prize. Lastly, we will host a WALDO party the morning of August 3rd at 10:30 am with more raffles, prizes, games, and maybe a cameo by Waldo himself!

 

This is a great activity for the kids each summer, and each summer the amount of participants grows. We've had hundreds running around the neighborhood finding Waldos. It is a true joy for us and for the participating businesses/organizations. It costs NOTHING to join. 

Our list of participating locations is growing, so check back July 1st for the  FINAL list.
