Podcast: What’s Up Bainbridge:
Where’s Waldo in Winslow?
Where IS that Waldo? Apparently, he and his clones are hanging out in 25 locations in Winslow and at the Bainbridge Public Library. For the fourth year, Eagle Harbor Book Co. is sponsoring on Bainbridge Island the nationwide, very popular Where’s Waldo adventure during the month of July.
Eagle Harbor Books’ events coordinator, Victoria Irwin, joins BCB host Channie Peters in the studio to talk about this fun activity inspired by the popular Where’s Waldo books. Participants can pick up a passport at Eagle Harbor bookstore or at any participating store. Then visit the stores where Waldo is lurking – these stores have a Waldo sticker on an outside window.
Now the fun begins – find the six inch tall cardboard Waldo in the store (or library). Once you have located him, the store staff will stamp your passport with a fun stamp unique to that store. After collecting 10 stamps, you will receive a very cool Waldo button in the bookstore. And the more stamps you accumulate in your passport, the more prizes you get. The final celebration and prize giveaway will be on July 31st at 11 a.m. in the bookstore.
This is a fun month-long event for Bainbridge Island and for visitors. There’s still time to find at least 10 Waldos, or even all 25 and win lots of cool prizes donated by store co-sponsors.
