What happens after the parade?
Hide & Seek, of course!
Here's how it works:
Participants stop by Hide & Seek Headquarters at 45th & Wallingford, (right in front of Wallingford Center) pick up a list of participating Merchants, visited at least 10 of them, find the costumed character in each store, get their form stamped, then bring it back to Hide & Seek Headquarters and drop it in the entry box.
Drawing at 2pm!
Merchants hide a laminated graphic (parade provided) somewhere in the store, greet folks as they visit, then sign or stamp their passport when they find the item. When attendees visit at least 10 merchants and receive 10 stamps, they can enter for the drawing at 2pm in front of Wallingford Center.
Participating merchants will be listed on the parade website with a link, are listed (of course) on all passports and listed on day of event signage.
They will also receive window signage before the parade so that attendees know they are participating.
