PHOTOS: Maplewood’s Words Bookstore Hosts ‘Where’s Waldo?’ Grand Prize Drawing

Words Bookstore hosted its annual Where’s Waldo local grand prize drawing on Thursday, with children and their parents attending to see if their “Find Waldo” efforts would win them one of many locally-inspired prizes. They enjoyed snacks, refreshments and some Waldo-themed activities before finding out who the lucky winners were.
