Northshire Bookstore – Find Waldo Local!

July 1 @ 10:00am-July 31 @ 7:00pm


Where’s Waldo? Hiding in Manchester of course! The famous children’s book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs will be hiding in local businesses and community organizations throughout our communities this July. Join in our fun scavenger hunt and win great prizes! Stop by Northshire Bookstore to pick up your passport and begin the search.

Where’s Waldo is the creation of Martin Handford, whose entertaining drawings of crowd scenes swept the world in the late eighties. In celebration of Waldo’s longevity and popularity, his American publisher, Candlewick Press, is once again teaming up with the American Booksellers Association and 250 independent bookstores all across the country for some scavenger hunt fun as well as to encourage communities to patronize their local businesses.
