Where's Waldo? In Wellsboro Pennsylvania. For the fifth year running, Indie Bookstores Launch a Massive Cross Country Campaign to Promote the Shop Local Message in July.
This July, From My Shelf Books & Gifts is joining a nationwide celebration of the Shop Local movement and the iconic children’s book character, Where’s Waldo, who recently celebrated his twenty-fifth birthday.
Brought back by popular demand for the fifth year in a row, indie bookstores across the country will be hosting Find Waldo
scavenger hunts while spreading the "Buy Local" message in their cities and towns.
It’s a month-long scavenger hunt for Waldo hosted by 250 indie bookstores across the nation in July 2016. Participating bookstores champion the Shop Local message by enlivening downtown areas with a community-wide scavenger hunt activity to which everyone — kids, parents, and Waldo-lovers of all ages — is invited to participate.
On July 1, 2016, Waldo-spotters will set off on a hunt to find the elusive character hidden around dozens of downtown businesses in Wellsboro. Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a Find Waldo passport at a participating business and collect a store stamp or signature for each Waldo they spot. Hundreds of Waldo spotters will be eligible for prizes.
