What happened after the parade?
Hide & Seek, of course!
Here's how it worked:
Participants stopped by Hide & Seek Headquarters at 45th & Wallingford, (right in front of Wallingford Center) picked up a list of participating Merchants, visited at least 10 of them, found the graphic in each store, got their form stamped, then brought it back to Hide & Seek Headquarters and dropped it in the entry box.
Drawing at 2pm!
Merchants hid a laminated graphic (parade provided) somewhere in the store, greeted folks as they visited, then signed or stamped their passport when they found the item. When attendees visited at least 10 merchants and received 10 stamps, they could enter for the drawing at 2pm in front of Wallingford Center.
Participating merchants were listed on the parade website with a link, were listed (of course) on all passports and listed on day of event signage. They will also received window signage before the parade so that attendees knew they were participating.
