WHAT: Elusive picture book character
WHERE: In Ballard! (Good question!)
WHEN: July 1–30
Tell your kids, or just tell someone else's kids: Waldo, everyone's favorite hard-to-spot protagonist is visiting 22 Ballard businesses this month. Those who spot him can win prizes, including stickers, book coupons and more.
Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo Local in Ballard!” passport with the names of all the participating sites, and get their passport stamped or signed for each Waldo they spot. The first 100 Waldo seekers to get their passports stamped or signed at ten or more sites can bring their passports back to Secret Garden to collect prizes. Collecting store stamps or signatures at twenty or more businesses will entitle diligent seekers to entry in a grand prize drawing on July 31, with the top prize being a 6-volume deluxe set of Waldo books.
