Where's Waldo Scavenger Hunt

For the whole month of July, Bookends & Beginnings will sponsor our eighth annual Where's Waldo scavenger hunt—a great summer vacation activity for kids and a wonderful way to discover (and support) local businesses. Throughout the month, the famous stripey-shirted character won't just be hiding out in books, the way he usually does. He'll be hiding out in nearly three dozen fabulous independent business downtown and on Central Street. Kids pick up their "Find Waldo in Downtown/North Evanston!" passport at Bookends & Beginnings. We'll publish the full list of participating businesses in our July newsletter. Kids get their passport stamped or signed for each Waldo they spot. Finding Waldo at 20 or more businesses gets kids into the final party—attended by Waldo himself—and enters them into a drawing for prizes donated by all the participating businesses.
