Find Waldo Local 2019

Find Waldo Local is back! 

Old Firehouse Books is excited to be participating in Candlewick Press' Find Waldo Local event again! This is a great event that helps support local business in our community. 

Not familiar with our Find Waldo Local event? 

Find Waldo Local is a community-wide Shop Local scavenger hunt hosted by ABA-member bookstores with participation from dozens of merchants in their towns. This July, Waldo spotters, young and old, are encouraged to get out and support their favorite local businesses, and maybe discover a few new ones they didn't know about. The hunt culminates with a grand celebration held at Old Firehouse Books! 

This year, participants can enjoy an extra challenge as they try to find not only Waldo but also the sneaky Odlaw! (at Old Firehouse Books only)

When does the fun begin? 

Find Waldo Local will kick off on July 1st, 2019. The hunt will continue for the entire month of July, with the celebration taking place in early August (more detail soon!)!

Waldo will be hiding at 25 local business in Old Town Fort Collins (including our bookstore!). Waldo seekers who find Waldo in at least 10 locations will receive an 'I Found Waldo' button and a coupon for $1 off a Waldo book from our store. 

Waldo seekers who find Waldo at least 20 locations will receive a button, a coupon, PLUS be entered into the grand prize drawing, which will take place at the party on August 3rd

(Please note: coupons and buttons are limited to the first 125 seekers to turn in their Waldo passports.) 

We hope you'll join in the fun this July. If you have any questions feel free to email or call the store at 970-484-7898.
