 Elusive Book Character Returns to New Orleans to Celebrate Local Independents

Where's Waldo? It's no surprise that the elusive book character, Waldo, chose to hang out with his dog, Woof, in the neighborhood with his favorite 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 25 different independent local shops all around Octavia Books - from ice cream parlors, snowball stands, chocolate shops, and eateries to toy stores, hobby shops, movie theaters, and bike 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 still on.

Here are the participating businesses:
