The school year is fast approaching!

And while you're hauling kids around trying to soak up those last days of summer, make sure you take a moment to visit downtown Boise.

Rediscovered Books, the local downtown bookstore, is hosting the annual "Where's Waldo?" scavenger hunt for the month of August. Participants will hunt through local downtown businesses to find the bespectacled man in stripes in order to win prizes.

Find 10 Waldos, and you'll receive a discount on "Where's Waldo" books at Rediscovered Books. Find at least 25 Waldos, and you'll be entered to win prizes from the participating businesses.

This is a great way for Rediscovered Books to promote shopping locally to support our city's economy. It's also a fun, free activity for kids and adults alike. There's no age restriction for participating, so you don't need to be knee-high to scout out Waldo.

To play, pick up a Waldo Passport from Rediscovered Books and have participating business employee stamps your passport as you locate the Waldo hiding out in their store.

We love supporting local businesses, and enjoying Boise's beautiful downtown. You might just see a member of Thinking Boise's team with a Waldo Passport in one hand, and binoculars in the other as we join in the hunt for Waldo.
