Find Waldo in Park Rapids

July 01, 2022 - July 31, 2022

Where’s Waldo? In Park Rapids, of course! The iconic children’s book character in the red-and-white-striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting 17 locations throughout our community this July. Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2022, Find Waldo Local is a great summer vacation activity and a wonderful way to support local businesses.

Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo Local in Park Rapids!” stamp card, which contains the names of all the participating sites; with each Waldo they spot, they can get their card stamped or signed by the participating shop. To make things a little more challenging, there will be one slightly different Waldo hiding in Beagle and Wolf Books. Collecting store stamps or signatures at 12 or more businesses will entitle diligent seekers entry into a grand-prize drawing for Waldo books and paraphernalia. Drawing for the Grand Prize will be at Beagle and Wolf Books & Bindery at 3:30 p.m. Sunday, July 31.

Once again, in celebration of Waldo’s longevity and popularity, Candlewick Press is teaming up with hundreds of independent bookstores across the country for some hide-and-seek fun designed to encourage residents to patronize their local businesses. There is no charge to participate, and the hunt lasts for the entire month of July.
