Waldo is turning twenty-five this year, and to celebrate, the famous fellow in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting twenty different La Conner businesses all through the month of July.
Spotting Waldo can win you prizes, including buttons, books, and more. You can participate by picking up a “Find Waldo in La Conner!” search list with the names of all the businesses, and collect an “I Found Waldo at ___________” card for each Waldo you spot. Collecting cards in sixteen or more businesses and turning them in at The Next Chapter Bookstore will win a Waldo button and an entry for other, larger prizes, drawn at a Waldo party on July 31. The Grand Prize is a complete six-volume set of Waldo books. If you prefer a shorter version of the hunt, you can collect the cards from eight businesses and pick up a Waldo button at The Next Chapter Bookstore.
