Where's Waldo? In Columbus of course. The famous children’s book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting twenty-five different local businesses throughout owntown Columbus this July. Those who spot him can win prizes, including stickers, book coupons and more. Waldo figures will be well hidden in local business establishments. Find Waldo is a great summer vacation activity, and a wonderful way for residents to support local business and the Shop Local movement.
Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo Local in Columbus!” passport at Viewpoint 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 Viewpoint Books 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 at Viewpoint, with the top prize being a 6-volume deluxe set of Waldo books and a Kobo Mini E-Reader.
