Find Waldo in Missoula!

Waldo, the iconic children’s book character, is coming to Missoula, Montana, this July to spread the “Buy Local” message in our town!


This year marks the 30th anniversary of Where’s Waldo?, and Waldo has decided to celebrate with the locals! This is a creative and fun way to highlight all that’s wonderful about our local indie businesses, and we hope you’ll want to join in.

For the month of July, Fact & Fiction will be hosting an exciting month-long scavenger hunt to find Waldo in twenty-five participating local businesses. We’ll give you a “Find Waldo Local” passport with the names of twenty-five participating merchants that will hide Waldo in their storefronts--atop cash registers, on the ceiling, on the back of front doors, hiding in a shirt pocket--the hiding places are endless! You will collect stamps in your passport when you spot the Waldo standee/figurine (6" tall).

Throughout the month, there will be prizes awarded to the players, given out here at Fact & Fiction. The first 125 players who collect store stamps/signatures from at least 10 different businesses and turn their passports into Fact & Fiction win an “I Found Waldo” button and a “$1 Off” coupon. Players who collect at least 20 of the 25 possible stamps/signatures win an “I Found Waldo” button and a “$1 Off” coupon, PLUS they are entered in a drawing on July 31 for other larger prizes. Team play is acceptable, but prizes, other than stickers and coupons, are single.

Deadline: July 31, 2017

**This page will be updated as more details about prizes and participating merchants become available.**
