Waving Waldo

The famous fellow in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is back visiting local businesses in Rhinebeck & Millerton throughout the month of July. Spot him to win prizes, including temporary tattoos, books, and more!

There is no charge to participate, and the game lasts for the entire month of July, culminating in an in-store Waldo Prize-Drawing party on Wednesday, July 31 at 4 PM in both stores.

How To Play

1. Pick up a Waldo passport at Oblong Books in Millerton or Rhinebeck - passports will be available beginning Monday, July 1.

2. When you spot Waldo at any one of the businesses listed below in the village you are seeking him, collect a store stamp or signature.

3. When you’ve collected at least 11 of the possible 22 different store stamps/signatures in Rhinebeck or 12 of the possible 25 in Millerton, bring them back to Oblong Books - your FIND WALDO headquarters - to claim a "Waldo" sticker and a “$1 Off” coupon for any Waldo book (limited to first 100 Waldo spotters).

4. If you collect at least 20 of the 22 possible store stamps/signatures in Rhinebeck or 23 of the possible 25 in Millerton, bring your passport to Oblong Books and you will be entered in a drawing for a deluxe boxed set of Waldo books and other great prizes.
