Where's Waldo?
Event date: 
Monday, July 1, 2019 - 11:00am to Wednesday, July 31, 2019 - 8:00pm

Event Location

For the eighth year in a row, Avid Bookshop is hosting Where's Waldo in the ATH? running from July 1 to July 31st. There is no fee to participate in this city-wide local business scavenger hunt.

Finding Waldo in the local Athens businesses is a great summer vacation activity, and a wonderful way for residents to support local business and the Shop Local movement. There are only 250 bookshops in the nation participating and Avid is honored to be included!

WHERE'S WALDO?

In Athens, 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. Waldo figures will be hidden in local business establishments.

HOW TO PLAY:

Start by picking up a scavenger hunt sheet at either Avid Bookshops in late June. Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a "Where's Waldo in the ATH?!" passport with the names of all the participating sites, and get their passport stamped or signed for each Waldo they spot.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FIVE POINTS BOOK SHOP IS THE "HEADQUARTERS" FOR PRIZE PICK-UPS.

The first 125 Waldo seekers to get their passports stamped or signed at ten or more sites can bring their passports back to Avid Bookshop at Five Points to collect prizes. Collecting store stamps or signatures at twenty or more businesses will entitle diligent seekers entry into a grand prize drawing on August 1st, with the top prize being a 6-volume deluxe set of Waldo books.

Mark your calendars to celebrate the end of this city-wide hunt
on July 31, 2019, at our Waldo party at Avid at Five Points at 6:30pm.
