Where's Waldo this summer? In Delaware. And if you find the famous, bespectacled and striped children's book character enough times, you can win all sorts of lovely prizes!

Waldo figures will be hidden in 25 downtown Delaware businesses throughout July. To participate, you pick up a "Find Waldo Local in Delaware!" passport at any of the participating businesses, then get your passport stamped or signed for each Waldo you find.

The first 100 Waldo seekers to get their passports stamped or signed at 10 or more sites can bring their passports to Fundamentals book store to collect prizes. Collecting store stamps or signatures at 20 or more businesses will entitle diligent seekers to be entered in a grand-prize drawing on July 31, with the top prize being a six-volume deluxe set of Waldo books and a Fundamentals gift card.

The participating businesses include: Amato's, Bare Bowl, Bargar Jewelry, Barley Hopsters, Beauty Lab, Breakaway Cycling, Beehive Books, Button Up, Carousel Closet, Central Ohio Symphony, Chelly Belly, Choffey's, DCDL, Delaware Dog, Endangered Species, Fundamentals, Gibson the Florist, Global Village, Keiko's Bead Box, Outer Layer, Pure-n-Simple, Second Sole, Strand, Toujours and Whit's.

There is no charge to participate, and the hunt lasts for the entire month of July. For more information about hunting for Waldo in Delaware, call Fundamentals at 740-363-0290, go to www.funbooksandmore.com, or follow the fun on the "Find Waldo in Delaware" Facebook page.
