Where’s Waldo? In Fort Greene, Brooklyn, of course! The iconic children’s book character in the red-and-white-striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting twenty-five local businesses throughout our community this July. Kids of all ages are invited to participate in the Find Waldo Local scavenger hunt -- a great summer vacation activity and a wonderful way to support local businesses in our community. (Check back for a full list of participating businesses!)
HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
- Pick up a “Find Waldo Local in Fort Greene!” passport at Greenlight Bookstore or any of the participating businesses, starting July 1.
- Visit the locations on the passport where Waldo is hiding during the month of July, and get your passport stamped or signed for each Waldo you spot.
- Collect store stamps or signatures at 10 or more businesses to get a Waldo button and a coupon at Greenlight!
- Collect twenty or more stamps or signatures to be entered into a grand prize drawing!
- Come to the Waldo Finale Party at Greenlight, 4:00 to 5:30 PM on July 31, to meet your fellow Waldo hunters, play games, enjoy refreshments, and win prizes! (Must bring your passport and be present at the drawing to be eligible to win the grand prize!)
There is no charge to participate, and the hunt lasts for the entire month of July. For more information about hunting for Waldo in Fort Greene, talk to the booksellers at Greenlight Bookstore.
