Find Waldo in Yakima!

Where's Waldo

Instructions for FIND WALDO IN Yakima!


Each participating player gets a “Find Waldo in Yakima!” search list to help them find Waldo and log their search. A player may start at any business on the list; the list travels with the player. Waldo is hiding - somewhere - in all the listed businesses. He's six inches tall, and he might be in any public part of the establishment.

  • Each store will have a "Shop Local, Find Waldo Here" window cling in their store window or on their front door. The scavenger hunt starts July 1 and ends July 30. 
  • Inside each participating business is a Waldo standee hiding somewhere. 
  • When you find a Waldo standee, talk to an employee and let them know where you found Waldo. 
  • You will then receive an "I found Waldo at ______ " card. One "I found Waldo at _____" card per player/team, please. 
  • If you are just starting out with your first Waldo sighting, you may ask the participating business for a “Find Waldo in Yakima!” search list as well. 
  • Players who collect cards from 8 different businesses and turn them in at Inklings win a Waldo button (for first 100 claimers). 
  • Players who collect all possible cards will win a free button AND be entered in a drawing on July 31 for other larger prizes. 
  • Team play is acceptable, but prizes, other than buttons, are single. 

The prizes so far:

  • A 6-volume deluxe set of Waldo books 
  • Waldo postcard books 
  • A book containing Waldo posters 
  • And more! 


On Tuesday, July 31, we'll have a Waldo party in the bookstore, inviting the press and local dignitaries to take part in the prize drawing. Waldo might even make an appearance to do the grand prize drawing!
