FIND WALDO IN EMMAUS, PA!

Elusive Picture Book Celebrity Creates Summertime Fun in Support of Shopping Local

July 5, 2018 — Where’s Waldo? In Emmaus, PA, of course! The famous children’s book character in the red-and-white-striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting local businesses throughout our community this July. Find Waldo Local is a great summer activity for kids, and a wonderful way to support local businesses and the Shop Local movement in our community.  See the attached list of participating businesses.

To participate, pick up a “Find Waldo Local in Emmaus Passport” at Let’s Play Books Bookstore, which contains the names of all the participating sites.  Then, visit each business to get the passport stamped or signed after finding the 6-inch Waldo hidden somewhere in each establishment. Collecting store stamps or signatures at the businesses will entitle diligent seekers entry into a prize drawing at the Grand Celebration on Saturday, August 4, at 12pm.

There is no cost to participate, and the hunt lasts for the entire month of July. This is the fifth year Let’s Play Books! has organized the event in Emmaus. “The program has been a huge hit.  Families can tailor the event to fit their own needs and timing.  It is by far one of my favorite times of the year – a Where’s Waldo scavenger hunt is the definition of playing books!” – Kirsten Hess, owner, Let’s Play Books Bookstore.

This year, many participating businesses are taking their love for Waldo to the next level. The month-long hunt ends with a Grand Celebration on Sunday, August 5, at 12pm.  Ai Orthodontics is sponsoring Rita’s Italian Ice for all participants.
