In fact he just spent the entire month of July in 20 Local First Utah Salt Lake city businesses including The King’s English. The infamous Waldo of the Where’s Waldo books got a great tour of the city.
In celebration of his 25th birthday we held a citywide scavenger hunt for Waldo, starting right here at the bookshop. With the help of 19 other enthusiastic businesses, we challenged kids and families to locate Waldo in some great hiding places across the city and the offered a change to win some fantastic prizes for their detective efforts.
Congratulations to the winner of our grand prize, announced at the Waldo Finale on July 31.
