Find Waldo Local is Coming Back for a Repeat Performance in July









Where’s Waldo? In Morgan Hill, of course! The iconic children’s book character in the red-and-white-striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting twenty or so 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, including BookSmart, Bike Therapy, Royal Clothiers, Bella Soul and many more.
Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo Local in Morgan Hill!” passport, which contains the names of all the participating sites (after June 15th), 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 July 31, with the top prize being a copy of Where’s Waldo? Destination: Everywhere!, a tribute to Waldo’s many decades of wandering. Each business will provide a prize too so there will be at least 20 winners!
Martin Handford’s collections of crowd scenes took the world by storm in the late 1980s, and since then they have held a cherished spot on bookstore shelves. There are now over 72 million Waldo books in print worldwide, and they’ve been translated into over thirty languages. An entire generation has grown up searching for Waldo.
There is no charge to participate, and the hunt lasts for the entire month of July. For more information about hunting for Waldo in Morgan Hill, call BookSmart at 408-778-6467
