Waldo's dog, Woof, is also hiding somewhere in Parnassus Books. Can you find them? The search is on! Come by Parnassus to pick up your Where's Waldo passport and join the hunt today!

How To Participate

Participating in Find Waldo in Nashville is completely free and totally easy! Beginning Saturday, July 1, come to Parnassus Books and get your free Find Waldo in Nashville passport, which contains the names and addresses of all the participating locations where you can find Waldo. Visit as many locations as you can and look for Waldo at each one; when you find him, collect the initials or signature of an employee at the location on your passport. 

After you collect 10 signatures on your passport, return to Parnassus Books to collect your reward and a coupon to Parnassus Books. If you manage to find Waldo at 20 of the 22 participating locations, return to Parnassus for those rewards PLUS be entered in a drawing to win great prizes! 

Parnassus Books encourages readers of all ages to participate in Where's Waldo, but buttons, coupons, and prizing drawing eligibility are limited to children ages 14 and under. Limit one entry per participant. The hunt for Waldo can be a team effort, but passports and prizes can only be claimed by individuals. All prizes must be claimed by Sunday, July 30.

Then, mark your calendar for July 31st at 3:30pm and join us for our Where's Waldo grand celebration! We'll hold our grand prize drawings, have yummy refreshments and fun activities. A real live Waldo will even stop by to pose for pictures!
