Where’s Waldo? In Estes Park, of course! The iconic children’s book character in the red-and-white-striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting local businesses and throughout our community for all of 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, including Macdonald Book Shop, Images of Rocky Mountain National Park, Inkwell and Brew, and Colorado Homestead!
Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo Local in Estes Park!” passport, which contains the names of all the participating sites, and get their passport stamped or signed for each Waldo they spot. And to make things a little more challenging, Waldo’s nemesis, Odlaw, will also be hiding in Macdonald Book Shop. Collecting store stamps or signatures at 10 or more businesses will entitle diligent seekers entry into a grand-prize drawing at the end of July, with the top prize being a copy of Where’s Waldo? Destination: Everywhere!, a tribute to Waldo’s many decades of wandering. Turn in your passport for a button and a $1 coupon good on any Waldo book (first 125 participants!).
There is no charge to participate, and the hunt lasts for the entire month of July. For more information about hunting for Waldo in Estes Park, call Macdonald Book Shop at 970-586-3450.
