Find Waldo in South Minneapolis 2016

Where's Waldo? In South Minneapolis, of course!

The famous children’s book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting twenty-five different local businesses throughout our south Minneapolis community this July. Those who spot him can win prizes, including buttons, book coupons and more!  Waldo and his faithful dog, Woof, figures will be well hidden in local business establishments. Find Waldo is a great summer vacation activity, and a wonderful way for residents to support local business and the Shop Local movement.

Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo Local in South Minneapolis!” passport with the names of all the participating sites, and get their passport stamped or signed for each Waldo they spot. The first 100 Waldo seekers to get their passports stamped or signed at ten or more sites can bring their passports back to Moon Palace Books to collect prizes. Collecting store stamps or signatures at twenty or more businesses will entitle seekers to enter in a grand prize drawing on July 31st.

You're invited to our Find Waldo Local Party at 3:00pm at our store on Sunday, July 31st!
