Where's Waldo in Lynchburg Raises Awareness To Shop Local

Lynchburg, VA - A fun family activity is about to start in Lynchburg, a scavenger hunt to find Waldo.

It's part of an initiative through the Retail Merchants Association to get people out to shop local.

You know the character Where's Waldo ? Well, he'll be in 40 shops all over Lynchburg starting July 1st. When you find him in those stores, you get a stamp on a passport made especially for the event. Once you collect 12 stamps, you'll be entered to win a 100-dollar Visa gift card and an entire collection of Where's Waldo Books.

"Everyone's going to be a winner at some level, so we hope that they will participate in the Where's Waldo and pick up their passport, they can print it online at the or come here to Givens, Little Dickens, as our Where's Waldo in Lynchburg headquarters.," said Laurie Gulluscio of the Retail Merchants Association.

There will be a wrap up party at Givens Books August 2nd. That's when winners will be announced and each child attending will get a ticket to win lots of other prizes. You can learn more here.
