Where's Waldo in Ballard - Blowout Party!

WheresWaldo

 

Waldo, the iconic children's book character, has proven to be an enduring classic.  Around these parts, it's proved to be the funnest and best BUY LOCAL campaign EVER!  Last year, hundreds and hundreds of Ballard-ites participated in our month-long WHERE'S WALDO scavenger hunt in 25 local and locally owned businesses. 

This is our 2nd annual event!

Our friends over at Candlewick Press (on of the best publishers of kid's books in the world) has come up with a creative and fun way to celebrate all that's wonderful about our local indie businesses across the entire USA, and we hope you'll join us.

All July long, we've been hosting an exciting month-long scavenger hunt to find Waldo in 25 participating local businesses. See links to them below!

Today is the day for our final Waldo shindig at our bookstore with prizes, assorted hoopla and a special visit from. . . . . WALDO!

The prizes given to the scavenger hunt winners today are AWESOME.  They include lots of the Waldo books shown below, and wonderful things and gift certificates donated by all the participating merchants!  You need not be present at the party to win, but why wouldn't you want to come?  With Waldo-inspired games, refreshments, and millions and millions of prizes to win!?!?! 

 

Here's the list of gorgeous Ballard businesses participating in this year's scavenger hunt:  (support them for they are lovely, but also isn't it nice having them all here?)
