Where's Waldo is turning 30 and to celebrate he's sending you on a scavenger hunt throughout the District all month long to encourage you to shop local!

If you want to participate stop by the Children and Teens department at Politics and Prose to pick up your Find Waldo passport.

During the month of July a six-inch tall Waldo will be hidden at 25 D.C. locations.

If you find him, tell an employee and they will stamp your passport.

Once you’ve collected 10 stamps, stop by Politics and Prose to receive a small prize. When you’ve collected 20 or more stamps, come to P&P to be entered into a grand prize raffle featuring Waldo and all of his friends!

On July 31, there will be a party at 7 p.m. at P&P. The party features trivia, games, activities, a costume contest, and, of course, the announcement of raffle winners!

If you spot him, snap a picture and share it on Twitter or Instagram using #WheresWaldoDC, and be sure to tag the business too.
