Where's Waldo? All Month Long!
Where's Waldo? In Leavenworth, of course. The famous children’s book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting twenty-five different local businesses throughout our community this July. Those who spot him can win prizes, including buttons, book coupons and more. From The Wood Shop/Hat Shop to Mainz House of Rocks, from The Taffy Shop at to A Paw Above, Waldo figures will be well hidden in local business establishments. Find Waldo Local is a great summer vacation activity, and a wonderful way for residents to support local business and the Shop Local movement.
Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo Local in Leavenworth!” passport with the names of all the participating sites, and get their passport stamped or signed for each Waldo they spot. The first 125 Waldo seekers to get their passports stamped or signed at ten or more sites can bring their passports back to A Book for All Seasons to collect prizes. Collecting store stamps or signatures at twenty or more businesses will entitle diligent seekers entry into a grand prize drawing on July 31 AT OUR BIG WHERE'S WALDO PARTY!
Where’s Waldo is the creation of Martin Handford, whose entertaining drawings of crowd scenes swept the world in the late eighties. Since then, the Where’s Waldo books have held a cherished spot on bookstore shelves the world over. There are now over 63 million Waldo books in print worldwide and they’ve been translated into over 30 languages. An entire generation has grown up searching for Waldo and his cast of wandering companions.
There is no charge to participate. The hunt lasts for the entire month of July, and culminates in a fun party! For more information about hunting for Waldo and Woof in Leavenworth, call A Book for All Seasons at 509-548-1451.
