Find Waldo Local!


Where’s Waldo? In Hardwick & Greensboro, of course!

The beloved be-striped, be-spectacled children’s book character is visiting twenty-one local businesses throughout our community this July.

This is a fun summer vacation activity AND a way to support local businesses and the Shop Local movement in our community.

To participate, pick up a “Find Waldo Local in Hardwick-Greensboro!” passport at the Galaxy Bookshop, which contains the names of all the participating sites. Then, visit each of the businesses and search for the hidden Waldo! When you find him, get your passport stamped or signed.

To make things a little more challenging, Waldo and his friends have each dropped a precious item in The Galaxy Bookshop. These items can be spotted as well. Collecting store stamps or signatures at eighteen or more of the businesses will entitle diligent seekers entry into a grand-prize drawing on July 31, including Waldo books and a pair of tickets from The Highland Center for the Arts with the top prize being an eight-volume set of Waldo books.
