Where’s Waldo? In Davidson, of course! The iconic children’s book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting over 20 local businesses throughout our community this July. Find Waldo Local is a great summer vacation activity and a wonderful way to support local businesses and the Shop Local movement in our community, including these partners: The Jewel Box, The Soda Shop, Ben & Jerry’s, South Main Sweet Shop, The Needlecraft Center, and Whit’s.
Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo Local in Davidson!” passport, which contains the names of all the participating sites, and get their passport stamped or signed for each Waldo they spot. Collecting store stamps or signatures at twenty or more businesses will entitle diligent seekers entry into a prize drawing.
This year marks both Waldo’s and Main Street Books’ thirtieth anniversary, and to celebrate, Main Street Books will throw a joint birthday party on July 30th at 2 pm. The whole town is invited to join in birthday games, indulge in snacks and sweets, find a good book, and witness the reveal of the Find Waldo Local prize winners.
