Find the elusive Waldo in Poulsbo

POULSBO — Where’s Waldo? In Poulsbo, of course.

The famous children’s book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting 25 businesses in Historic Downtown Poulsbo throughout July. Those who spot him can win prizes, including stickers, book coupons and more.

To participate, pick up a “Find Waldo” passport at Liberty Bay Books, 18881 Front St. The first 100 Waldo seekers to get their passports stamped or signed at 20 or more sites can bring their passports to Liberty Bay Books to be invited to the free Waldo celebration on July 31. At the celebration, there will be a grand prize drawing of a six-volume deluxe set of Waldo books.

“Where’s Waldo” is the creation of Martin Handford, whose drawings swept the world in 1987. There are now more than 58 million Waldo books in print translated into 18 languages.
