Where’s Waldo? In Evanston, of course! The famous children’s book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting twenty-six local businesses throughout Evanston this July. And, this year Waldo has a friend -- Andy Warhol! Adults are invited to look for Warhol while their kids or grandkids look for Waldo. 

Stop by one of these local businesses listed below to pick up a Waldo or Warhol passport and start your hunt in Downtown Evanston! Once you get a passport, get it stamped or signed for each Waldo or Warhol they spot. Collecting store stamps or signatures at twenty or more businesses will entitle diligent seekers entry into a grand-prize drawing at the celebration party at Bookends & Beginnings (date TBD). Turn in your stamped passports to Bookends & Beginnings by July 30 to be entered in the raffle. The top prize for Where's Waldo is a six-volume deluxe set of Waldo books and there will be lots of other fun prizes. There is no charge to participate, and the hunt lasts for the entire month of July.
