Tracey Hekkens’ Churro Central van will be on site at the Hullaballoo festival, where Wally will be a key participant.

To celebrate the Walker Books’ character’s 25th birthday, Fiddlesticks Toys will co-ordinate a ‘Where’s Wally’ competition encouraging people to find posters of Wally and his friends.

Entrants then fill out an entry form detailing where each poster is found and submit it to the Station Street shop. A winner drawn at the end of the day will receive a Where’s Wally hamper.

Fiddlesticks owner Carol Angers said she expected young and old fans of Where’s Wally to get involved because he was such a memorable part of childhood for many people.

Mrs Angers said the competition provided an interactive aspect to the festival.

Churro Central owner Tracey Hekkens, who remembers the Where’s Wally books from her son’s childhood, will park up her popular food van in Cottesloe for the festival.

Mrs Hekkens, her husband John and son Greg (19) started the business six years ago after discovering the churro in Disneyland on a family holiday.

‘We have three vans and do 150 events a year,’ she said.

Hullaballoo is on Saturday, November 9 from 9am-5pm and will include wine tasting, live music and local products.
