FIND WALDO IN BOZEMAN!
Iconic Children’s Book Character Continues to Create Summertime Fun to Support the Shop Local Movement
Where’s Waldo? In Bozeman, of course! The iconic children’s book character in the red-and-white-striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting twenty-five local businesses throughout our community this July. Celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2022, Find Waldo Local is a great summer vacation activity and a wonderful way to support local businesses.
Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo Local in Bozeman!” stamp card on or after Friday July 1st, which contains the names of all the participating sites; with each Waldo they spot, they can get their card stamped or signed by the participating shop. To make things a little more challenging, there will be *one* slightly different Waldo hiding in Country Bookshelf. Collecting store stamps or signatures at twenty or more businesses will entitle diligent seekers entry into a grand-prize drawing for Waldo books and paraphernalia at a party on Sunday, July 31st at 4pm.
Martin Handford’s collections of crowd scenes took the world by storm in the late 1980s, and since then the books have held a cherished place on bookstore shelves. More than 78 million Waldo books have been sold worldwide, and they’ve been translated into over thirty languages. An entire generation has grown up searching for Waldo.
