Find Waldo, Win Prize

Print

LARCHMONT–Larchmont wants you shopping locally in July.  Twenty business, including The Voracious Reader, organizers extraordinaire, will set up a little treasure hunt of sorts, as Proprietress Francine Lucidon explains:

Waldo is turning twenty-five this year, and to celebrate, the famous fellow in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting twenty different local businesses all through the month of July.

Those who spot him can win prizes, including buttons, books, and more. From Longford’s at 1941 Palmer Avenue to Foley’s Hardware at 2088 Boston Post Road, Waldo figures are showing up in public areas of local establishments. Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo in Larchmont!” search list with the names of all the businesses, and collect an “I Found Waldo at ___________” card for each Waldo they spot.

Collecting cards in sixteen or more businesses and turning them in at The Voracious Reader will win a Waldo button and an entry for other, larger prizes donated by local merchants will be part of the drawing at a Waldo Anniversary party on Tuesday, July 31 at 3PM. The Grand Prize is a complete six-volume set of Waldo books. People who prefer a shorter version of the hunt can collect the cards from eight businesses and pick up a Waldo button at The Voracious Reader.
