The Insiders: You found Waldo; now find your way to Gibson’s to claim some prizes

As millions of you already know, having read the newest issue of the Insider, we recently crowned a winner in our latest scavenger hunt adventure. Congratulations, Page Cannon! But we are hardly the only ones who send you sleuthing through the streets of Concord. Gibson’s Bookstore has been known to cook up a mean Waldo-based scavenger hunt of its own, and tonight is the night to crown some winners!

You know Waldo, that two-dimensional dude in the red-and-white striped sweater who is always hanging out in various scenes with thousands of other imaginary people who all look remarkably alike and dress in eerily similar color schemes. Well, this may or may not be an indictment on the wardrobe variety in Concord, but he’s recently been hiding throughout downtown. Hopefully you found him the 16 times necessary to qualify for prizes at tonight’s scavenger hunt wrap-up party, which begins at Gibson’s at 6.

Prizes available tonight for those Waldotectives include a Where’s Waldo poster book, a pass for two tickets and a medium popcorn at Red River Theatres, two scratchboard kits from Rowland Studio, a $15 gift certificate for New to You and an insulated monkey lunch bag from Caring Gifts, which comes with the necessary descriptive caveat that it’s “a bag that looks like a monkey, not a bag for or of monkeys.”

And then there’s the grand prize: an all-expenses paid vacation to wherever you are standing at the time, and a boxed set of Where’s Waldo: The WOW Collection, courtesy of Gibson’s Bookstore!
