Find Waldo!


Where's Waldo Event, Sea Grape Gallery

Sea Grape Gallery is joining in the fun of finding Waldo this July!  Our neighboring business, Copperfish Books, and the Downtown Punta Gorda Merchants are bringing a super-fun activity for kids and families to downtown Punta Gorda this month — a Find Waldo Scavenger Hunt! For the 8th year, Candlewick Press, the American Booksellers Association and 250 indie bookstores across the country are teaming up for a month-long promotion that’s fun for the whole family! Twenty-five local businesses, including Sea Grape Gallery, are participating, making this a real local business initiative!  All you have to do is stop in at participating shops, restaurants and businesses to see if you can find where Waldo is hiding. Pick up a passport at any of the 25 participating locations (listed below) and collect a stamp or signature in your Waldo passport wherever you spot him.

When you are done searching (deadline is July 31), bring your passport to Copperfish Books, your FIND WALDO local headquarters.

  1. Find Waldo in ten locations and you’ll get an “I Found Waldo” button and $1 off coupon for any Waldo book of your choice at Copperfish Books!
  2. Spot Waldo in 20 different locations and you’ll get the button and $1 off coupon, PLUS be entered into the Grand Prize Drawing for Where’s Waldo books and other great prizes.

The drawing will be held during the Find Waldo Local Wrap Party on Wednesday, July 31, 4-5 pm at Copperfish. Any participants wanting to attend, please RSVP to (941) 205-2560 or
