Where’s Waldo?

Where’s Waldo? In the Pioneer Valley, 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 stickers, book coupons, and more! You will find Waldo figures in businesses such as Atkins Farms in North Amherst, The Children’s Museum in Holyoke, Jones Library in Amherst, Magic Wings in South Deerfield, three businesses in Thornes Marketplace, A2Z Science & Learning and many, many more! Find Waldo is a great summer vacation activity and a wonderful way for residents to support local business and the Shop Local movement.

Come pick up a passport at A2Z!

Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo Local in The Pioneer Valley!” passport with the names of all the participating sites and get their passport stamped or signed for each Waldo they spot. The first 125 Waldo seekers to get their passports stamped or signed at ten or more sites can bring their passports back to Odyssey Bookshop to collect prizes. Collecting store stamps or signatures at fifteen or more businesses will grant diligent seekers entry in a grand prize drawing on Saturday, August 6th at 2:00 PM, with the top prize being a 6-volume deluxe set of Waldo books, gift certificates from participating businesses, and more!
