Beginning Monday, July 1st (and during the entire month of July), the famous children’s book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is hiding out at local businesses throughout downtown.
Pick up a “Find Waldo” passport at Bookshop or the Downtown Information Kiosk, get it stamped when you spy Waldo at participating businesses, then turn it in at Bookshop Santa Cruz. The first 100 seekers to find 10 Waldos in Downtown Santa Cruz can stop by Bookshop with their stamped passports to claim their immediate prizes. Seekers who find 20+ Waldos can turn in their passports at Bookshop Santa Cruz to be entered to win the Grand Prize. A celebration for completing the hunt will be held on Sunday afternoon, August 4th, at 2:00 at Bookshop Santa Cruz, with a party including a Waldo costume contest for kids, games and activities, a raffle, our Grand Prize drawing, and even a visit from Waldo himself!
