Phoenix Books funds sculpture, honoring Vermont author Rudyard Kipling, in second of planned downtown series

Work on the first carving announced in a planned series of historical stone sculptures in downtown Rutland will begin in August - but organizers say the “second” sculpture will be completed before the first.

Where's Waldo? In Rutland, of course. The famous children’s book character in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting local businesses throughout our community this July. Visit to learn how you can find Waldo and enter to win prizes - or just come and enjoy the party!  Attendees will get to participate in Waldo-themed activities and even meet Waldo himself.

This party is the culmination of Find Waldo in Rutland!
