Public invited to find Waldo in Kent

A “Where’s Waldo?” event will be offered in Kent for the month of July.

The famous children’s book character will visit 25 Kent businesses.

Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo Local in Kent!” passport, which contains the names of all participating sites, and get their passport stamped or signed for each Waldo they locate.

Collecting store stamps or signatures at 20 or more businesses will entitle seekers entry into a grand-prize drawing on July 30, with the top prize being a six-volume deluxe set of Waldo books.

This year, participants can also ColorWaldoAndWin. When they share a completed coloring sheet of Waldo on Instagram, they’ll be entered into a drawing to be one of five lucky winners of a deluxe prize pack.

Participating businesses include Davis IGA, Kent Station Pharmacy, 109 Cheese, Black Sheep Yarns, Annie Bananie/Backcountry Outfitters, The Good Gallery, Sundog Shoe & Leather and more.
