WILMINGTON- Where’s Waldo? In Wilmington of course. The iconic children’s book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting 25 local businesses throughout the community this July. Find Waldo Local is a great summer vacation activity and a wonderful way to support local businesses and the Shop Local movement in the community.

Anyone who wishes to participate can go to Bartleby’s Books, and pick up a “Find Waldo Local in Wilmington!” passport, which contains the names of all the participating sites, and get their passport stamped or signed for each Waldo they spot. Collecting store stamps or initials at 10 or more businesses will entitle diligent seekers entry into a grand-prize drawing at the Blueberry Block Party on August 5, with the top prize being a six-volume deluxe set of Waldo books and a Bartleby’s gift card.

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the “Where’s Waldo?” books. Martin Handford’s collections of crowd scenes swept the world in the late 1980s, and since then have held a cherished spot on bookstore shelves the world over. To celebrate such a special milestone, Waldo’s friend Wenda will also be hiding in Bartleby’s Books.

There is no charge to participate and the hunt lasts for the entire month of July. For more information call Bartleby’s Books at (802) 464-5425 or visit
