Find Waldo Local!

July is almost here, and that can only mean one thing:  It's time to find Waldo in Yakima!  2017 marks the 30th anniversary of the Where's Waldo books, and we're celebrating in style.  There are new businesses to search and tons of prizes to be had.  And at Inklings, you can search for Waldo's friend Wenda in addition to Waldo himself.
