Elusive Book Character Returns to New Orleans to Celebrate Local Independents
Where's Waldo? It's no surprise that the elusive book character Waldo and his friend Wenda chose to hang out in the neighborhood with their favorite independent bookstore in beautiful uptown New Orleans for his vacation this whole month of July!
The famous children's book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs has been hobnobbing all month at 24 different independent local shops all around Octavia Books - from ice cream parlors, snowball stands, chocolate shops, and eateries to toy stores, movie theaters, and crafts shops.
Those who spot him can win prizes, including buttons, book coupons and great gifts contributed from all of the participating local businesses, with the grand prize being a six-volume deluxe set of Waldo books.
Collecting store stamps or signatures at 20 or more businesses will entitle diligent seekers to entry in a grand prize drawing at the Waldo party.
There is no charge to participate. And the hunt is on. For more details about where to start, click here.
