Powered by Candlewick Press and the American Booksellers Association, the Find Waldo Local Scavenger Hunt is a an opportunity to showcase some of the amazing locally owned Indie shops and dives in our beautiful downtown.
Waldo can be found in 25 participating downtown businesses from July 1st - 31st so stop by the Bookstore, pick up a Passport, and start hunting!
At each participating business where you spot Waldo, let a staff member know, get your Passport stamped, and keep hunting. When you've found all the Waldos you can, bring your completed Passport back to the Bookstore to enter the giveaway for any one of the super prizes we'll be giving away on August 3rd.
The first 125 people who find at least 10 Waldos will get a $1 off coupon for the purchase of Waldo books from Adventure Bound Books and an "I Found Waldo" button.
To enter the giveaway drawing, you must find at least 20 Waldos and bring your stamped Passport back to the Bookstore.
** Please note!**
Some of the amazing downtown Indies who have chosen to participate may have front lobbies or a receptionist. Please be mindful of the type of business you are in and the guidelines or requests they make about quiet hours or "hunting". In some locations, Waldo may be very visible, perhaps even sitting on a front desk that you spot as soon as you walk into the business. Some Waldos may be hiding a bit more, but you will never need to move the business's displays or disturb breakable, heavy, or otherwise delicate merchandise. Some Waldos may move from day to day, so if a friend tells you where they spotted Waldo, he may not be in the same spot when you stop by.
Please do not pick up Waldo! You can let the business know where you found him without having to remove him from his hiding spot. Please leave Waldo at the business where you find him!
