Find Waldo in a Window


This year, our friend Waldo is a tad skittish about being within reach of hundreds of Waldo hunters in Downtown Frederick. But in the spirit of compromise, he’s hanging out in 40 storefront windows in July so Waldo hunters can spot him from a safe distance!

How it works:

Find Waldo in a Window 2020 begins July 1 and ends July 31. All ages can participate, but prizes are reserved for individuals 12 years old or younger. Remember to “mask up” and safely distance from others as you search for Waldo.

When you find Waldo in a window, check off the business name on your passport. No store signatures required this year!

When you’ve found all the Waldos (or when you get tired of searching!), deposit your passport NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, JULY 31 in the special Waldo drop-off box at Curious Iguana, 12 North Market Street (open Monday-Wednesday 10 am – 7 pm, Thursday-Saturday 10 am – 8 pm, Sunday 11 am – 6 pm).

You must find at least 20 Waldos to be eligible to win in our random prize drawing on August 1. (Remember – prizes are reserved for ages 12 and under!) Lucky winners will be notified by email, and prizes will be mailed to winners via USPS. Prizes include Waldo books and gift cards from Downtown Frederick merchants.
