That stripe-clad world traveler is on the loose and hiding in businesses all over town. The famous children’s book character, Waldo, is visiting twenty-five different local businesses throughout Albuquerque this July. Those who spot him can win prizes, including stickers, book coupons and more. Waldo figures will be hidden in local business establishments of all kinds, from museums and restaurants to toy shops and bookstores. Find Waldo is a great summer vacation activity, and a wonderful way for Albuquerque residents to support local business and the Shop Local movement. Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo Local in Albuquerque!” passport with the names of all the participating sites at Alamosa Books, then begin the hunt! There is no charge to participate, and the hunt lasts for the entire month of July. For each Waldo they spot, participants must get their passport stamped or signed. The first 100 Waldo seekers to get their passports stamped or signed at ten or more sites can bring their passports back to Alamosa Books to collect prizes. Collecting store stamps or signatures at twenty or more businesses will entitle diligent seekers to entry in a grand prize drawing on July 31, with the top prize being a 6-volume deluxe set of Waldo books.  Prizes will be awarded at Alamosa Books during our Where’s Waldo Party on July 31st at 4:00 PM.Where’s Waldo is the creation of Martin Handford, whose drawings of crowd scenes came to popularity in 1987. There are now over 58 million Waldo books in print worldwide and they’ve been translated into eighteen languages.
