In Lititz Of Course!!
The famous children’s book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting twenty-five local businesses throughout our community this July.
Find Waldo Local is a great summer vacation activity and a wonderful way to support local businesses and the Shop Local movement in our community.
Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo Local in Lititz!” passport, which contains the names of all the participating sites, and get their passport stamped or signed for each Waldo they spot. Collecting store stamps or signatures at twenty or more businesses will entitle diligent seekers entry into a grand-prize drawing on August 1 at our WALDO party, with the top prize being a six-volume deluxe set of Waldo books.
This year, participants can also #ColorWaldoAndWin: when they share a completed coloring sheet of Waldo on Instagram, they’ll be entered into a drawing to be one of five lucky winners of a deluxe prize pack.
Waldo is the creation of Martin Handford, whose entertaining drawings of crowd scenes swept the world in the late eighties. Since then, the Where’s Waldo? books have held a cherished spot on bookstore shelves the world over. There are now over 65 millionWaldo books in print worldwide, and they’ve been translated into over thirty languages. An entire generation has grown up searching for Waldo and his cast of wandering companions.
