Find Waldo in Winchester

Book Ends is celebrating Waldo's 25th birthday by having a monthlong downtown search for Waldo.

To celebrate his 25th birthday, Waldo will be visiting local businesses in Winchester's Town Center getting to know the perfect hiding spots.

If you see the little figure wearing his famous striped red and white shirt and black-rimmed specs while he's checking out one of the 20 businesses across town, you could win a prize from . To participate, just swing by the bookstore and grab a “Find Waldo in Winchester” search list with the names of all the participating businesses and collect an “I Found Waldo at _____" card for each Waldo you spot.

If you find Waldo figures in at least 16 businesses, you will win a Waldo button and a chance at other giveaways. The grand prize is a complete six-volume set of Waldo books. A drawing will be held at Book End's Waldo party starting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 31. 

Book Ends is part of the 250 independent bookstores partnering with Candlewick Press, Waldo's publisher located in Somerville, celebrating his birthday.
