“Hump Day” is “Stump Day” here at 365Barrington.com and we have a new mystery photo for you today. We’re also happy to announce the winner of last week’s challenge and reveal a great prize for this week’s winner. So let’s try this again. Can you guess where in Barrington this picture was taken?
We’ll get to this week’s prize in a minute. But first, let’s talk about last week’s winner. We had a bunch of correct guessers last week, but we drew the name today and the winner is…
Thanks for your guess and congratulations, Dottie! I’ll be emailing you this afternoon with details about how to receive your $50 gift card to TT Patton Fine Stationery in Barrington. Our thanks to the shop’s owner, Theresa Patton, for this generous prize! Click HERE to view last week’s photo. Here’s another, more revealing look at the spot where we took that picture.
Great Goebbert! You just haven’t done Halloween in Barrington if you’ve never been to Goebbert’s Farm Market. The mystery photo is of the giant pumpkin which sits atop the silo at Goebbert’s in South Barrington. Did you know this pumpkin has a name? Yep. It’s “Happy Jack” and he’s been sitting up on top of that silo since 1979. He’s made out of fiberglass, weighs one ton and measures 18 feet wide and 15 feet tall. They had to use a crane to get him up there! Goebbert’s is gearing up for their Fall Festival which starts this weekend on Saturday. We’ll be writing more about the fall festival here at 365Barrington.com in the coming days, which brings me to the new prize for our “Guess Where Wednesday” mystery photo contest.
