Each July, Quail Ridge Books hosts Find Waldo Local. About 20 local stores participate by hiding the familiar Waldo from Where’s Waldo? fame in their stores and, in some cases, contributing a prize seekers have an opportunity to win at the end of the event. We’ve been participating for 4 years now. This year we found Waldo at 11 different stores – one more than the 10 needed to qualify to enter to win one of the prizes.
My son and I headed over to Quail Ridge last Saturday to attend the Waldo Shops Local party. There was a big cake with Waldo’s likeness and even Waldo himself made an appearance. We also were one of the lucky prize winners taking home a gift certificate to treat ice cream. Looks like our next adventure will be a trip downtown for a sweet treat!
Supplies: You’re a Natural #2 papers and Extra Day elements by Mommyish; Melon Sorbet elements by Sahlin Studio; Per Diem elements by Sara Gleason.
Have you ever participated in Find Waldo Local?
Linking up with Mommy & Me Monday at Really, Are You Serious? Technically D & I aren’t in the same photo, but I did get photos of us both on the same day and into a single scrapbook layout so that sort of counts? Maybe? 🙂
