Find Waldo Local 2022: Tempe and Phoenix
Kids and parents — Find 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 different local businesses throughout our community this July. Those who spot him can win prizes, including temporary tattoos, book coupons and more.

Visit the participating 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 temporary tattoo and a coupon for Waldo books. Collect stamps from 20 or more businesses, and you'll get a free raffle entry.

To celebrate the end of the scavenger hunt, we're giving away lots of raffle prizes. Those who have collected stamps from 20 or more businesses must check in with one of our booksellers to be entered into our raffle for fabulous prizes from participating local businesses! If your name is drawn, we will give you a call after July 31.

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.
