Find Waldo Local 2017: Tempe and Phoenix
Kids and parents — Waldo Local is a great summer vacation activity, and a wonderful way for residents to support local business and the Shop Local movement.

Where's Waldo? In Phoenix and Tempe, of course! The famous children's book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting twenty-five different local businesses throughout our community this July. Those who spot him can win prizes, including buttons, book coupons and more.

Visit the twenty-five local businesses on the passport and find Waldo, who will be moved to a new place every day. Collect stamps from 10 or more businesses to get your very own Waldo button and a coupon for Waldo books. Collect stamps from 20 or more businesses, and you'll get a free raffle entry.

Join us at both Changing Hands locations on at 2pm on Sunday, July 30 to celebrate the end of the scavenger hunt. We'll have cake, crafts, activities, photos with Waldo himself, and lots of raffle prizes. Bring your passports to the party to exchange them for prizes and an entry into our raffle for fabulous prizes from participating local businesses! More info »

Come in to Changing Hands Phoenix or Tempe any time during the July and ask a bookseller for your "Find Waldo" passport for Phoenix or Tempe.
