find waldo local in oswego this july!

Where’s Waldo? In Oswego, NY of course! The iconic children’s book character in the red-and- white-striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting twenty-five local businesses throughout our community July 1st-30th!

Visit our store beginning July 1st to pick up a stamp card, which contains the names of all the participating businesses where you can spot Waldo. Collecting store stamps or signatures at twenty or more businesses will entitle diligent seekers entry into a grand-prize drawing for Waldo books and paraphernalia at our Waldopalooza on July 30th! There is no charge to participate.
