Where's Waldo Scavenger Hunt & Celebration


Throughout July, with a Where's Waldo? party in the Children's Section at 2 pm. 

Waldo has been hiding—in books—for over 30 years! Celebrate Waldo in a month-long scavenger hunt to find the beloved character hiding in sixteen businesses on H Street NE. 
Stop by the register to pick up your Find Waldo passport. The passport lists the locations where Waldo is hiding. Take your passport with you as you travel to the different locations. You can start at any one of them. When you spot the hidden Waldo, tell an employee and they’ll stamp or sign your passport. Waldo is only six-inches tall and he might be hiding in any public part of the establishment.
Once you’ve collected 8 stamps, stop by the store to receive a small prize. When you’ve collected 10 or more stamps, come and be entered into a grand prize raffle featuring Waldo and all of his friends! On July 28, plan to attend a rockin’ Waldo party at 2 pm. The party features games, activities, a costume contest, and, of course, the announcement of raffle winners!

Kids Games & Crafts @ 2 p.m.
Costume Contest @ 2:15 p.m. (for kids and adults!)
Raffle Drawing @ 2:30 p.m.
