‘Where’s Waldo?’ scavenger hunt underway in Henry County
HENRY COUNTY, Va. (WDBJ) - We know the red-and-white stripe-wearing Waldo can be found hiding in the pages of “Where’s Waldo?” books. This month, you can also find Waldo in businesses in Henry County.
Local bookstore Books and Crannies has partnered with American Bookseller Association and Candlewick Press for some fun hide-and-seek. People can pick up a stamp card at any of the 25 participating businesses and start the hunt.
Owner of Books and Crannies DeShanta Hairston said this summer activity encourages people to support local businesses.
“Local businesses are the heart of the community and pouring back into these businesses is what keeps our community thriving,” explained Hairston. “And I don’t think so many people realize how much money goes back into the community when you support a local business versus a big corporation. So, this ‘Where’s Waldo?’ event is to hopefully drive people to support these businesses.”
There will be a big celebration in “Books and Crannies” at the end of the month where prizes will be given out.

Books and Crannies
The Boutique Uptown
