People can pick up a Find Waldo stamp card at any of the participating businesses, which has a list of all places where Waldo is hiding. Businesses will stamp or sign the cards when people find Waldo at each location.

When people collect at least 10 stamps, they can go to Plaid Elephant Bookstore to claim a Waldo sticker and a coupon for $1 off any purchase. For collecting at least 20 stamps, people will be entered into the Grand Prize Drawing for a deluxe set of Waldo books and other prizes donated by downtown businesses.

The drawing will take place on Tuesday, July 30 during the Waldo Party from 4 pm to 6 pm at Plaid Elephant Books.
