Cold Spring retailers hide elusive character
By Alison Rooney
Waldo, the lost-in-a-crowd bespectacled wanderer, is going to be up and down and all around Cold Spring’s Main Street, at both Philipstown libraries and at the Cold Spring Farmers’ Market at Boscobel through the end of July. If your children or teenagers (up to age 17) are top-notch detectives, there may be some loot in store.
More than 20 local businesses are hiding a Waldo cutout in their establishments as part of a promotion sponsored by the American Booksellers Association and Candlewick Press to encourage people to shop local.
Children can pick up a game passport at Split Rock Books, 97 Main St., then locate Waldo at each retailer to receive a stamp or signature. (The Current will participate in a slightly different way; search for Waldo hidden in each issue.) A party and prize drawing will be held at the bookstore on July 31.
