Where’s Waldo? In Bethel of course. The famous children’s book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting twenty-five different local businesses throughout our community this July. Those who spot him can win prizes, including buttons, book coupons and more.
In celebration of Waldo’s longevity and popularity, his American publisher, Candlewick Press, is once again teaming up with the American Booksellers Association and independent bookstores all across the country, including Byrd’s Books here in Bethel, for some hide and seek fun as well as to encourage communities to patronize their local businesses.
There is no charge to participate, and the hunt lasts for the entire month of July, ending with a party on July 30th for those who qualify with 20-25 businesses visited on their passport. The “Passport” is available HERE and copies will be available in all 25 locations.
Good luck Waldo hunters!
