Kids of All Ages: Where’s Waldo Extravaganza!
July 5, 2019
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until July 31, 2019
Where’s Waldo? In Leavenworth, of course! Every single day throughout July, astute sleuthers may discover Waldo in over twenty-five local Leavenworth businesses. Pick up your passport to play—and to compete for grand Waldo prizes!—at A Book For All Seasons. A great summer vacation activity and a wonderful way to support the Shop Local movement.
Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo Local in Leavenworth” passport, which contains the names of all the participating sites, and get their passport stamped or signed for each Waldo they spot. And to make things a little more challenging, Waldo’s nemesis, Odlaw, will also be hiding in A Book For All Seasons. Collecting store stamps or signatures at twenty or more businesses will entitle diligent seekers entry into a grand-prize drawing on July 31, with the top prize being a copy of Where’s Waldo? Destination: Everywhere!, a tribute to Waldo’s many decades of wandering.
Once again, in celebration of Waldo’s longevity and popularity, his American publisher, Candlewick Press, is teaming up with the American Booksellers Association and two hundred and fifty independent bookstores across the country for some hide-and-seek fun to encourage communities to patronize their local businesses. There is no charge to participate, and the hunt lasts for the entire month of July.
