Scrolling through facebook the other day I was happy to see that the Newsroom is doing something super fun for the kids (and maybe us too? ;) and it all revolves around Waldo! I love the books and whats better than finding him in one of those? Finding him around town, like a TON of different places around town.

Newsroom I tip my hat to you for such a cool idea! The coffee is great so while you are picking up your Where's Waldo Passport enjoy a drink and gelato for the fam as you start your adventure!

Plenty of places and here is what it's all about:

It's time for Find Waldo Local!

or at any of the other 24 participating business. Each business will be hiding a 6-inch-tall Waldo SOMEWHERE on their premises. Find him, and you'll get a stamp or signature on your passport. Get at least 10 stamps or signatures on your passport, and you can bring it to Inklings for an "I Found Waldo" button and a coupon for $1 off a Waldo book. Get at least 20 stamps or signatures, and you get the button and coupon, plus you'll be entered in the Grand Prize Drawing at the end of the month!
