Find Waldo Local at Downtown Books
Waldo Spotted in Manteo!
If it’s July, it must be time for Find Waldo Local! A super fun, family friendly and FREE scavenger hunt! Where is Waldo hiding? In the beautiful little town of Manteo, NC, on Roanoke Island! Waldo will be hiding in 25 local businesses and everyone can participate! Grab a Find Waldo Local Manteo passport at Downtown Books to find out where he’s hiding and then the search is on! You might spy him at Garden Deli, the Laughing Lollipop, Pioneer Theatre, Oretga’z and more. Find him in ten businesses and you’ll get a cool Waldo button (while supplies last). Find him in twenty or more places and you’ll be entered into the grand prize drawing that includes an 8 volume set of Waldo books! Martin Handford’s Waldo books have been best-sellers since the late ‘80s and have kept generations busy looking for this dashing figure. You might even see a real life Waldo show up at Manteo library’s summer reading program… or at the Fourth of July festivities downtown.. or who knows where! Keep your eyes open! The contest, sponsored by Downtown Books at 105 Sir Walter Raleigh Street, runs the entire month of July and wraps up with a Waldo party and drawing on July 31 with our friends at the Manteo branch of the Dare County library.
