FIND WALDO on Aquidneck Island!
Our friend Waldo is hiding all over the island
just waiting for you to find him!
Are you game? Here's how to play...
Where's Waldo? On Aquidneck Island of course! The famous children’s book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting twenty-five different local businesses and organizations across the island in July. Those who spot him can win prizes, including stickers, book coupons and more. Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a Find Waldo Local on Aquidneck Island Passport with the names of all the participating sites at either ISLAND BOOKS location or download it here then start the search. You'll get your passport stamped or signed for each Waldo you spot. The first 100 Waldo seekers to get their passports marked at ten or more sites can bring their passports back to Island Books to collect prizes; twenty or more will get committed seekers entered in a drawing for many Waldo prizes. The hunt continues through Thursday, July 31st - all passports are due back at Island Books on Friday, August 1st - the prize drwaing is Saturday, August 2nd. Don't worry, if you're from out of town and win a prize we will send it to you!
It's as easy as 1-2-3!
1) Print your Find Waldo Local Passport that lists where Waldo is hiding and go find him during the month of July.
2) When you spot him at any location, get someone there to sign-off on your passport. Find Woof at Island Books -Wyatt Square for an extra signature!
3) When you've found him in 10 different locations you can bring your Pasport to ISLAND BOOKS to claim a Waldo sticker and coupon for $1 OFF any Waldo book OR bring your Passport in after finding 20 Waldos to collect your sticker, coupon and enter to win any one of many Waldo prizes. Contest ends Thursday, July 31st - passports due to either Island Books location by Friday, August 1st - prize drawing will be on Saturday, August 2nd. If you're from out-of-town we hope you'll play and if you're a winner we'll mail your prize!
