Where’s Waldo in Bethel? Look for him July 1st – 31st

Where’s Waldo this July? In Bethel, of course!

This July, Waldo is hiding in Byrd’s Books and 24 other Bethel businesses, and it’s your job to find him! Just pick up a Where’s Waldo passport at ANY participating business or print it out here, and start hunting! 

Once you’ve found Waldo at 10 different businesses, head back to Byrd’s Books to pick up your prizes — a Waldo sticker and a coupon for $1 off any Waldo book in the store. Waldo hunters who get their passports stamped or signed at 20 or morebusinesses are invited to attend our Where’s Waldo party, which will be held on Tuesday July 31st at 6:00pm at Byrd’s Books. If you get 20 or more stamps/signatures, you’ll also have the chance to enter the grand prize drawing for the complete Where’s Waldo boxed set! The drawing will be held at the Where’s Waldo party on Tuesday at 31st at 4:30. (Note: this year the top two prizes MUST be present to win).
