More about this year's Find Waldo Local:

The search for Waldo is once again coming to life in Downtown Traverse City!  From June 1st to June 29th, Waldo will be visiting sixteen downtown stores and restaurants.  Pick up a passport at any of the participating locations (listed below), and collect a stamp or signature in your Waldo passport wherever you spot him.


Find Waldo in eight locations and you'll get a $1 off coupon for any Waldo book of your choice at Brilliant Books!

Spot every Waldo and you'll get a $1 off coupon, and be entered into the Grand Prize Drawing.  You could win part of $250 in prizes, including a $100 gift certificate to Brilliant Books!

Spot the special Waldo to be entered into a bonus drawing!  This year, one of the Waldo's is slightly different—to be entered into the bonus drawing, tell us where he's located and what makes him different.


Pick up your Waldo passport at any of the participating locations and turn it in at Brilliant Books by 5pm on Wednesday, June 29th to receive your Waldo coupon and be entered into the drawings.  We'll announce the winners on June 30th online and in-store; pop by on the 30th to claim prizes and celebrate!
