Where’s Waldo? In Downtown Saratoga Springs of course! The famous children’s book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs will be hiding in local businesses and community organizations throughout our downtown this July. Join in Northshire Bookstore’s fun scavenger hunt and win great prizes!
Stop by Northshire Bookstore on Broadway in Saratoga Springs to pick up your passport and begin the search. The first 125 participants to find at least ten of the Waldos hiding around town will win a button and a coupon for $1 off any Where's Waldo Book. Find at least 15 Waldos to be entered in the grand prize drawing, which includes many great Waldo prizes.
Where’s Waldo is the creation of Martin Handford, whose entertaining drawings of crowd scenes swept the world in the late eighties. In celebration of Waldo’s longevity and popularity, his American publisher, Candlewick Press, is once again teaming up with the American Booksellers Association and 250 independent bookstores all across the country for some scavenger hunt fun as well as to encourage communities to patronize their local businesses.
The participating businesses for 2019 are:
Saratoga Farmers Market (Wednesdays from 3-6 pm, Saturdays from 9 am - 1 pm)
Saratoga Springs Public Library Children's Room
