— Sparta Books is excited to be hosting for the 7th summer in a row the Where’s Waldo in Sparta, New Jersey Scavenger Hunt! The scavenger hunt takes place the entire month of July, and registration is now open.

Sparta Books has teamed up with 25 local businesses to help with the hunt! This is a really fun way to promote their "Shop Local" message and bolster their shared sense of community in Sparta.

The participating businesses will have a Waldo sticker in the front window of their store and a Waldo standee located inside their store. When you spot Waldo, get your passport stamped from the store employee and check it off your list. When you collect 10 different stamps, bring them to Sparta Books to claim a prize. When you collect all 25 come back to Sparta Books to be entered in a drawing for a deluxe set of Waldo books and lots of other great prizes.

Sparta Books will host a grand celebration for all participants on Tuesday, July 31, from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m.

The registration fee is $5.00. Stop in to register or call the store at 973.729.6200. Space is limited so call soon. Program supplies will be available for pickup starting July 1.
