Find Waldo in Porter Square

Where's Waldo? In Porter Square, of course. The famous children’s book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting twenty different local businesses throughout Porter Square from July 1st-July 31st. Those who spot him can win prizes, including buttons, book coupons and more. Waldo figures (and one Woof figure) will be hidden somewhere in all the participating stores.

To participate, pick up your Find Waldo passport at Porter Square Books or any of the other participating local businesses. (Full list below) You’ll earn stamps as you find Waldo in the stores around Porter Square. Everyone who collects at least 10 stamps will earn an “I Found Waldo” button and the first 125 to do so will win a coupon. Those who collect 15 of the stamps can also be entered to win a 6-volume deluxe set of Waldo books and other prizes. (Full prize list below.)

Find Waldo in Porter Square will culminate with a celebration and prize drawing on July 31 at Porter Square Books.

The participating businesses are Porter Square Books, Tags, Star Market, Cambridge Naturals, Cambridge Savings Bank, Watch Shop at Porter Square, Mind’s Eye Yarns, Commonwealth Lock, City Sports, Porter Square Vintage, Clothware, Mucky Kids, Pemberton Farms, Bicycle Exchange, Fun Antiques, General Optical, Abodeon, Guitar Shop, Nomad, Wardmaps, and Irish Imports.
