THE WHERE'S WALDO IN RENO HUNT BEGINS JULY 1, 2012 AND ENDS JULY 31, 2012
Where's Waldo? In Reno, NV, of course. He's turning twenty-five this year, and to celebrate, the famous fellow in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting eighteen different local businesses and organizations all through the month of July. Those who spot him can win prizes, including buttons, books, and more.
Join the "Find Waldo in Reno" hunt:
1) PICK UP A SEARCH LIST: Beginning July 1, pick up your "Find Waldo in Reno" search list at Sundance Books and Music or at any of the participating businesses listed below.
2) START SEARCHING: Waldo figures are showing up in public areas of local establishments all over Reno! (Refer to your search list for the names and addresses of participating businesses.)
3) COLLECT YOUR WALDO CARDS: Collect an "I Found Waldo at _________" card for each Waldo you spot.
4) TURN IN YOUR CARDS AND WIN PRIZES: Collecting cards in SIXTEEN OR MORE businesses and turning them in at Sundance Books and Music will win a Waldo button and an entry for other, larger prizes to be drawn at a Waldo party on July 31. 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 Sundance Books and Music.
Waldo is the creation of Martin Handford, whose entertaining drawings of crowd scenes swept the world in 1987. Since then, the Where’s Waldo books have held a cherished spot on bookstore shelves the world over. There are now over 55 million Waldo books in print worldwide and they’ve been translated into eighteen languages. An entire generation has grown up searching for Waldo and his cast of wandering companions.
In celebration of Waldo's longevity and popularity, his American publisher, Candlewick Press, is teaming up with the American Booksellers Association and 250 independent bookstores all across the country, including Sundance Books and Music here in Reno, NV, to have fun and encourage people to visit local businesses. There is no charge to participate, and the game lasts for the entire month of July.
