Jeremy Burke of Bay Books puts on his annual Where’s Waldo promotion in Old Town Bay St. Louis. Jeremy is an avid supporter of creating fun opportunities for reading. Children just love searching for Waldo throughout the local Bay shops and boutiques. Below you will find more information on the Bay Books celebration of Waldo.
Where’s Waldo? In Old Town Bay St. Louis 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 stickers, posters and books. Waldo figures are popping up in public areas of local establishments.
Support local business and the Shop Local movement with this great summer vacation activity!
Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo in Bay St. Louis!” passport with the names of all the participating sites at Bay Books, then get their passport stamped or signed for each Waldo they spot. The first 100 Waldo seekers to get their passports marked at seven or more sites can bring their passports back to Bay Books to collect prizes; ten or more will entitle diligent seekers to entry in a grand prize drawing on July 31, with the top prize being a 6-volume deluxe set of Waldo books! There is no charge to participate and the hunt last throughout the entire month of July. For more information please contact Bay Books at 228.463.2688.
