Where’s Waldo Naperville?

The famous character can be spotted in more than 20 stores in Downtown Naperville for the July contest, but just like in the books he isn’t that easy to find.

Businesses participating in the contest will have a small cutout of the character hidden inside. Once you find it, collect the small card from a store employee.

If you are able to find Waldo in 12 different locations you’re entered to win a deluxe box set of “Where’s Waldo” books.

“It’s just a fun thing to do in the summer, I know we have grand- parents who come into town now to try and find him with their grandkids, it’s just fun,” said Candy Purdom of Anderson’s Bookshop.

This year the local contest expanded to Indie Bound businesses in LaGrange and Downers Grove.

For a full list of stores taking part in the contest, head over to Anderson’s Bookshop.
