Waldo in Astoria is back for a third year, and we couldn’t be more exited about it! Here’s the full scoop from Astoria Bookshop, Waldo HQ:

Where’s Waldo? In Astoria, of course.  The famous children’s book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting twenty-five different local businesses throughout our community this July. Those who spot him can win prizes, including buttons, book coupons, and more. From the Astoria Bookshop at 31-29 31st Street to Tiny You at 10-50 Jackson Avenue, from Lockwood at 32-15 33rd Street to Raising Astoria at 26-11 23rd Avenue, Waldo and–newly added for 2014–faithful dog Woof figures will be well hidden in local business establishments. Find Waldo is a great summer vacation activity, and a wonderful way for residents to support local business and the Shop Local movement.

Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo Local in Astoria!” passport with the names of all the participating sites, and get their passport stamped or signed for each Waldo they spot. The first 100 Waldo seekers to get their passports stamped or signed at ten or more sites can bring their passports back to the Astoria Bookshop to collect prizes. Collecting store stamps or signatures at twenty or more businesses will entitle diligent seekers to enter in a grand prize drawing on July 31, with the top prize being a 6-volume deluxe set of Waldo books.

The Slovak-Czech varieties shop is such a lovely place to find wooden toys and baking items
